Before the schools broke up for the summer holidays, hundreds of Darlington students received a host of medals, certificates and trophies in recognition of their sporting achievements throughout the year. Among them, of course, were many of our Junior Harriers so here’s a selection of those that we know of. We’re sure there’ll be more, so if you’re not mentioned here, please let us know….and a photo would be great!
As you can see from this photograph, Carmel College had quite a haul of silverware after another successful year of sporting achievement. There were several Junior Harriers on the roll of honour: India Pentland received a special award for a hugely successful cross country season, in particular, becoming the English Schools Cross Country Champion. Nat Bell was awarded ‘Male Athlete of the Year’ for the second year running in recognition of competing in both the English Schools National T&F Finals and the English Schools Combined Events Finals (which are in September)
Alex Boyer was awarded ‘Biathlete of the Year’ for becoming U13 Biathlon British Champion. Other individual awards for Sporting Excellence and Sporting Achievement went to Olivia Bell, Lily Large, Benedict Davies and Josh Scott.
