Walsall Schools Athletics Championships

Our Academy took a group of 26 students to the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham on Wednesday 18th September, to compete in the Walsall Schools Athletics Championships.

Our squad was a little depleted due to illness and injury but all members of the squad competed with tremendous courage and determination.

The organisers of the championships, Mr Philip Holt, went out of his way to praise the behaviour, attitude and determination of our Academies students, specifically asking me to pass on his praise to Mr Hubble on our return.

Special mention should go out to 2 students, Tanzeel and Nico. Tanzeel was the Academies only male Year 8 student to attend, and on various occasions stepped up to support the Year 9 team in a number of events, against much bigger and experienced boys.

Nico came third in the Year 9 boys Shot-Put winning West Walsall a bronze medal! Excellent effort gentleman!

Now work starts for the E-ACT Athletics Championships, later in this academic year…
