After a fantastic athletics season for Wisbech Grammar School, first form pupils Lewis Shipley (Wisbech) and Abby Piccaver (Spalding) both qualified and competed at the IAPS National Athletics Championships at Birmingham.

Abby came fourth in her 200m heat, not quite enough to qualify for the final, but the competition was a great experience for her to build on for next year.

Lewis came second in his 100m heat, qualifying for the final in which he came third. Lewis also competed in the 800m final and won with a time of 2m 14.58s.

Director of sport, Phil Webb, said: “It is a terrific achievement to even reach the IAPS National Athletics Championships and we are extremely proud of both Lewis and Abby’s hard work during this season.

“I am over the moon for Lewis, who broke his own school record as well as taking the title of fastest U13 boy in the country at the 800m.”
