In early June Mr Alston, Mr Tey-Botchway and Mrs Brand took a set of Year 10 boys & girls to Northgate High School in Ipswich to compete in the South Suffolk Athletics Competition. The competition was very good with most schools having athletes that are currently representing Suffolk in a variety of events.
Throughout the afternoon and early evening all the students that represented Felixstowe Academy gave their all in each event they participated in. Overall we managed to finish 6th out of 12 schools which was a very good achievement bearing in mind the boys team had several people missing and meant we only had 8 boys competing over all events.
The girls went with a very strong set of students and particular mention goes to Eleanor Jennings who came 2nd in the 200m, Ellie Haste who finished 3rd in her 800m, Brooke Jennings who came 2nd in the 100m and Matt Haskell who finished 6th in the boys 800m. Overall an excellent success and huge praise goes to all athletes that competed on the day.
