PROFESSIONALISM and determination were in action on the track as Academy student Luke Duffy achieved an impressive time at the English Schools Athletics Association national championships.
Luke (15) finished the event in a very close fourth place ( only 0.9 seconds behind first place) in the games at Gateshead stadium.
The talented Year 10 student achieved a national standard time and will now represent England at the Sainsbury’s Games.
Even more impressive is that the top three places were all won by Year 11 students, with the first two place runners already representing England at international events. Well done Luke!
