On Thursday 16 June, a team of 30 Year 7 students represented Workington Academy at the Allerdale Athletics Championships, which was held at Copeland Athletics Stadium, Whitehaven.
The event was a great experience for all involved, as students competed in a range of track and field events against other schools from within Allerdale including; Nelson Thomlinson, Keswick, St Josephs, Cockermouth and Netherhall.
Our students were excellent ambassadors for Workington Academy throughout the day, demonstrating respect, responsibility and resilience at all times, whilst competing in their own events and supporting their peers.
All students demonstrated progress within the events that they completed, with some students going on to achieve stand-out performances on the day:
- Jake Wight (7APA) – 2nd in Long Jump
- Alice Rush (7AMI) – 1st in Javelin and 100m
- Ace Wedgewood – 3rd in Javelin
- Sara Holliday (7AHO) – 3rd in Discus
Jake Wight, Ace Wedgewood and Alice Rush have also qualified to represent Allerdale in the upcoming Cumbria County Championships that are taking place on Wednesday 29 June. – We wish these students the best of luck in the next round!
Well done to all involved in representing Team Year 7!
