We Are The Champions - Academy Takes Super Zone Athletics Division Two Title

The Coastal and Wolds Super Zone District Athletics Championships. Alan Grantham, Manager of the Schools Sports Partnership, presents the Division Two Trophy to Somercotes Academy Captains Kitty Crossley and Connor Wilson. Both Year 10.


Somercotes Academy triumphed in the Coastal and Wolds Super Zone District Athletics held at King George Stadium, Grimsby, taking the Division Two Title.

The new champions narrowly defeated Louth Academy into second place. Schools from across the region competed. Thirty eight students represented Somercotes Academy in the competition. Their amazing efforts will now see the Academy competing in Division One next year.

Two students also set county records at the championships. Oliver McAlinden jumped 1m 30 in the Year 7 Boys High Jump, and Tazz Wootton completed the Year 9 Boys 200m in 25.36s.

Chris Prendergast, Somercotes Academy's Curriculum Leader for P.E., said: "This is definitely the proudest moment of my teaching career. The students at Somercotes have put in a lot of effort both in lessons and after school, which has reaped the rewards today."
