On Saturday 11 June, two Year 9 pupils took part in two separate Athletics events. Both pupils are relatively new to competing in Athletics, but have shown to be very talented.
Maddison Williams-Powell represented Newcastle in the Regional Athletics Championships at Northwood Stadium. She competed for the first time in Javelin and out of the whole of Staffordshire, finished in 10th place.
Ben Harrison represented the West Midlands in the National Athletics Championships and finished in an impressive 2nd place in 100m sprint. He is now joining Newcastle Athletics Club to push himself even further.
The PE department and the Academy are extremely proud of both students and wish them every success in the future with their athletics careers!
