William Wright, a pupil at St Hugh’s School, Woodhall Spa, is the new Lincolnshire long jump champion at U13s level.

He secured his success in the County Athletic Championships at the Yarborough Centre, Lincoln, recently when he represented Nene Valley Harriers.

In a strong group of eight other athletes, William’s jump of 4.14m was good enough to take the title.

It was a personal best for William - as were two of other jumps over 3.85m.

William went on immediately after the long jump to run in the U13 boys 800m final, coming fourth.

In May, William came second in the U13 boys 75m hurdles at the first part of the County Championships at Grantham.
