Following successful performances at the recent Town Athletics Championships, Northampton Academy had six students invited to participate at the County Athletics Championships representing Team Northampton. The students proudly donned their red Northampton vests and headed over to Rockingham Athletics Track, Corby, on Saturday 11th June to compete. The event saw some excellent all-round performances. Our students displayed great character and competitiveness throughout the day.
Their determination was rewarded with the following results:
Alexandra (Year 10): Inter Girls Discus - 1st place (COUNTY CHAMPION 2022)
Isaac (Year 9): Junior Boys 80m Hurdles - 2nd place
Shae (Year 10): Inter Boys Javelin - 3rd place
Eddy (Year 9): Junior Boys Shot - 5th place
Cleo (Year 9): Junior Girls 75m Hurdles - 5th place and Junior Girls Long jump 5th place
Congratulations to all the students who took part. Alexandra and Isaac will now qualify for the Inter-Counties Championships in Stoke on Saturday 18th June. They will receive their County vest and represent Northamptonshire. We wish them both the very best of luck.
