Congratulations are being shared for Year 9 student Eleanor, who competed at last weekend’s Kent County Track & Field Championships.
Sports Scholar Eleanor Russell competed in the field events of Javelin, Hammer, Discus and Shot Put. Eleanor scored personal bests in each of these events, claimed silver in the Hammer, and took gold in the Javelin. Her Javelin throw of 29.22m earned her the title of Kent Champion.
The result was even more impressive given that she had spent Saturday night camping in the School’s grounds as practice for her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition!
“This is fantastic news,” commented Head of PE Mrs Kelli Hooper. “We’re delighted to see another Kent Champion at the School, this time in a field event. We’re very proud of Eleanor’s achievements.”
