Katie Cornish put on a good performance in the speed bounce 4x2 relay and the obstacle relay, finishing fourth in her heats; Ellla Grimshaw was on course to win her 6-lap individual event until her ankle gave way on the last turn board; Ava Windsor surprised herself with her good performance in the shot; and, finally, Katie McCann and Tia Smith saw success in both track and field events.
Well done to all the athletes involved – you were all a credit to the Academy.
