Newmarket Academy’s Year 9 Boys team triumphed at the West Suffolk Super 8 Athletic competition earlier this month.

All eight members of the team had to take part in a track event, field event and a relay race, with results then being combined to provide an overall winning school.

And it was the pupils from Newmarket that came out on top ahead of 14 other schools thanks to a batch of top five finishes.

Event organiser, Ian Jackson, said: “You can’t help but have admiration for the team from Newmarket.

“As one of the smaller schools in west Suffolk they punched well above their weight and they must be delighted to have beaten Thomas Gainsborough by just the one point.”

Meanwhile, headteacher Martin Witter added: “We are really proud of the effort our students put in at the recent athletics competition.
