Thomas Gainsborough School are celebrating after their under-13 boys’ team were crowned indoor athletics county champions.

The Great Cornard school team of seven boys flew the flag for the area sports partnership along with a team of eight girls at South Lee School in Bury St Edmunds.

The competition was much stronger than the area event and all students, who had to compete in at least two events on the day, rose to the challenge.

The girls’ team were fourth overall in Friday’s event to cap a good performance.

The boys’ team finished the meeting in first place by the narrowest of margins.
