Biathlon Champions of Hull!
Biathlon Champions of Hull! - Wiilow Parr Year 7 Girls Champion and Mason Opie-Palmer Year 7 Boys! Year 7 Girls Team Cahampion!
A number of students represented Sirius Academy at the Hull Schools Biathlon Championships – a combined event of a fifty metre swim followed by an eight-hundred metre run.
Students competed as individuals and as teams and we achieved some outstanding results!
Willow Parr became Year 7 Girls Biathlon Champion of Hull. A great surprise to her and something of one to us as Willow had not represented us previously. Willow was closely matched by Lauren McClean who came second overall. As part of a team the two girls were supported by Molly Marshall who came fourth and Emily Picker eighteenth. The girls overall positions combined meant that they were Year 7 Girls Team Champions for Hull. An outstanding achievement for four most deserving and pleasant girls! The Individual girls event was followed by the boys. Mason Opie- Palmer winning and becoming Hull Schools Boy Champion! A fabulous double completed!
Mason has now been involved in our all winning Year 7 Football Team; County Indoor Athletic Championships; Rugby Finalists and now Biathlon Champion. Some achievement?
Unfortunately the Year 7 Boys Team came second and did not match the girls in the team event. However, a very respectable final position supported by Daniel Chadwick; Harry Fenton;
Finley Bowler; Kai Shaw and Jack Mortimer.
Other notable performances came in Steve Willetts third overall; Jack Tanser fourth and Charlie Hadfield 5th in the Year 9 Boys Event. For the girls Year 9 Event – we had five girls in the top ten- Mia Husband 6th; Danielle Watters 7th; Katie Clark 8th; Amy Purdon 9th; and Alicia Pearson 10th. The girls finishing third in the team event.
A most successful morning staged at Ennerdale Sports Centre which highlighted the diversity of our students to compete at different disciplines and prove they are champions! And in Willow Parr an individual who has come from not being known to us and now is champion of our city- a’ Leicester City’ moment.
Congratulations to all of our students who competed.
Many thanks to Alex Sherwood for supporting and in organising the event.
