Louth Academy Year 11 student and talented cross-country runner Freya Plaskitt (15).
Year 11 student Freya Plaskitt (15) was chosen to run for the county after an impressive performance in the 2020 Lincolnshire Schools' Cross-Country Championships in Stamford.
Freya was one of five students who represented the Academy at the competition, finishing in 9th place out of 50 in the U17 Girls category. Tim Lowe, Louth Academy Curriculum Leader for P.E., said: "Freya showed fantastic grit and determination to finish in the top 10 places of a high-quality field, in challenging conditions. This is the type of attitude we encourage from all of our students at Louth Academy."
Freya's position resulted in her being selected to run for the Lincolnshire Cross-Country team in the Anglian Schools' Cross-Country Championships, held in Boston last weekend. Freya, who trains with Louth Athletics Club, put in a determined performance here too, but unfortunately failed to qualify for the next stage.
Mr Lowe said: "Freya ran well, however, due to many parts of the course being narrow, she found it difficult to overtake other runners and work her way up the field."
