Teesside High Triumphs at District Athletics

Wednesday 18 May 2016 | By Samantha Hockney

Teesside High School were named the Overall Boys and Girls Champions at the annual Stockton District Athletics Championships at the Middlesbrough Sports Village on 17 May 2016.

The small Eaglescliffe school was represented by 33 students across the age groups (Preliminary, Junior and Intermediate), and competed against 12 much larger schools in the area.

It was a resounding day of success in all categories with many winners in individual events.  The collective team also won 6 of the 9 possible team trophies on the day: the Preliminary Boys and Girls trophies, the Junior, Intermediate and Overall Girls Winners trophies, and finally the Overall Boys and Girls Champions. This is the first time in the school’s long history that an almost clean sweep has been achieved.
