Hull Schools Biathlon – Ennerdale Centre

[29 Apr 2015]

Students from Sirius Academy took part in the Hull Schools Biathlon Competition combining the art of swimming over 50m with that of running over 8oom at Ennerdale Sports Centre.

An alternative sports event which requires participants to be competitive in the water and on terra firma. The athlete has to be adaptable and physically strong
In showing a ‘dogged spirit’ to succeed.

The academy was represented by both girls and boys in Years 7 to 10 who competed as individuals and as a team.

The course of the morning saw some great results with some exceptional performances from our students.

Stars of the show for us were Phoebe Tomlinson(Year 7) who finished second; Alex Eversen(Year 8) first equal and Hull Biathlon Champion; and Harry Knight(Year 10) first( Hull Biathlon Champion) overall as individuals within their year competitions. Followed by a highly respectable third by Reece Gooch at Year 9 and a fourth place for Amy Purdon at Year 8 and a second place for Josh Atkinson in Year 10.

Added to the individual successes Sirius Academy were also team winners and Hull Biathlon Champions for Year 9 Boys and also Year 10 Boys. This was accompanied by being second for Year 7 Girls; Year 8 Girls; Year 8 Boys-
