Cockburn John Charles Academy (CJCA) Year 10 Boys competed in the Leeds School’s Athletics Final earlier this month, finishing Runner’s-up in the school’s best-ever performance at the championship.
After finishing among the top 8 of 32 to qualify for the final, the boys then produced an outstanding performance to win four of twelve events, including the shot-put, triple-jump, 200m and 4×1 relay. After qualifying over the likes of Rodillian and Leeds Grammar School in the heats the team took home the Silver position, outscoring Prince Henry’s Grammar, Wetherby, Carr Manor, Morley, Allerton Grange, and Guiseley.
Sporting success continues to grow at the school with the school taking second place in two City-wide tournaments (Year 8 football and Year 10 athletics), another South Leeds and Central 7-a-side Championship (Year 8 football), and Champions Schools Tournament Finals in rugby (Year 9 girls).
Well done to all of Cockburn School and Cockburn John Charles Academy students who took part in Sports Days at the John Charles Centre for Sport.
