Fantastic five battle for glory at inter-academy indoor athletics tournament
FIVE academies competed against each other in the third annual inter-academy indoor athletics tournament.
The event was organised by Cleethorpes Academy and held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.
More than 200 students from Tollbar and Cleethorpes Academies, Oasis Wintringham, Havelock, and Healing Academy had the opportunity to compete in an arena where Olympic athletes such as Jessica Ennis train on a regular basis.
The tournament was created by Cleethorpes Academy curriculum leader for PE, Rob Allenby, who felt local students should have the opportunity to compete in an arena all year round.

He said: "The event ran very smoothly as always, and is becoming an important part of the yearly sporting calendar.
"All the Academies have raised their game this year and there were some fantastic performances both on the track and in the field.
"The stadium is a fantastic venue for the young athletes to show off their talents."
The event was won for the third year running by Tollbar Academy students, who took five out of the seven trophies available. Paul Donnelly, Tollbar Academy Curriculum Leader for PE, said: "It was great to see more academies taking part in the competition this year, and I am very proud to say that our team still managed to hold on to the overall trophy.
"We also won trophies in the Year 8 and 10 boys and Year 9 and 10 girls sections, and I am very proud of all of the performances."
Cleethorpes Academy students also held their own, with Summer Exley winning the Year 10 girls high jump, Joe Finnegan winning the Year 9 boys high jump and Soiful Alom winning the Year 10 boys 50 metres.
