Individual efforts of students were recognised at Ormiston Sudbury Academy’s first PE presentation evening last week.

Seventy students in Years 9 and 10, supported by more than 130 parents and family members, watched the highlights of the sporting achievements, participation and successes in the school’s 2012/13 season.

The outstanding contribution to academy sport awards went to Ashleigh Pink and Mitchell Gardiner of Year 9 and Sophie Pink and Jordan Roberts of Year 10.

This was for their consistent effort, hard work and determination throughout the year in numerous sports.

In addition, as previously reported in the Free Press last month, Pink progressed to the England Girls’ Under-15 development basketball squad and has played in a tournament in Copenhagen.

She will also be playing in the European Championships in Portugal, which is staged later this summer.

The highest achieving team was the girl’s basketball team, who won the Western Area league convincingly and finished second overall in Suffolk.

Each sport was reviewed with a player-of-the-year award and players’-player-of-the-year award, with all students receiving certificates for their participation.
