A group of Year 7 boys from Cordeaux Academy, in Louth, travelled to Grantham Meres Leisure Centre to take on the best athletes in Lincolnshire at the county indoor athletics championships.

Various disciplines were tested including obstacle relay, long distance running, shot put and triple jump.

Cordeaux rose to the challenge admirably and performed brilliantly in the field events, especially Thomas Scott and Pako Shilling.

On the track, Cordeaux worked hard to pick up as many points as possible in the relays following some difficult races in the individual sprints. Unfortunately the team just missed out on an overall podium place, finishing fourth.

Each athlete had a positive experience and enjoyed the afternoon representing the school and the area alongside King Edward VI Grammar School. Congratulations to all seven – Pako Shilling, Thomas Scott, Thomas Howell, Finley Koslow, Taran Dhami, Kyle McLoughlin and Callum West.
