Alton Water Run

Many students from Holbrook Academy took part in the sixth Alton Water run on Sunday 12th May 2013. Despite the generally unfavourable weather – especially the strong headwind – our athletes recorded some impressive times. Organised jointly with Stutton, Tattingstone and Holbrook Primary Schools, this is a significant fund-raiser for the academy and provides funding for enrichment-type activities beyond the curriculum. Last year’s race meant, for instance, that the Indoor Rowing Club was able to purchase its first Concept 2 rowing machine and the Space Race project grew from an embryonic idea to an early summer reality. In the 5km event, specifically aimed at students from the Academy, the first five male student finishers (with overall positions in brackets) were: Sol Meredith (2); Paul Wain (5); Jacob vaughan (7); Joe Thompson (11) and Alex Myers (14). The first five female student finishers were: Maisie Spuprling (54); Millie Vaughan (55); Annabelle Lupton (56); Clara Dragan (77) and Isabella Rom (79). Very well done!
