Athlete of the Year

Well done to Shannon Mae in Year 11. Not only does she compete in English Schools athletics competitions, she also represents Cornwall at regional events. This means she competes most weekends and trains throughout the week.

On the weekend of 6th July, Shannon Mae competed at Millfield School in the South West League.

She took part in three events, two of which she hasn’t competed in before – triple jump and hurdles:

  • 200m: won in 26.5 seconds, a new PB and 0.7 seconds faster than old personal best.
  • Triple jump – won with 9.94m.
  • 80m hurdles – third in 14 seconds.

Shannon Mae was awarded U15 Athlete of the Year this week at her local club, the Newquay & Par Athletics Club. The award is voted for by coaches.

Congratulations to Shannon Mae.
