A former pupil at St Hugh’s School in Woodhall Spa represented South Derbyshire recently.
Hermione Wright competed at Moorways Stadium, Derby, for the Derbyshire Schools Athletics Championships.
Hermione secured a place in the final of the 80m sprint hurdles for intermediate (U17 girls). Although facing the UK No 1, Hermione hurdled well, coming second and gaining an automatic place in the Derbyshire Schools’ team.
She was delighted with her performance, after very little training during recent exams.
She was looking forward to competing for Derbyshire Schools at the Inter Counties Championships at Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium.
Earlier in the year, Hermione represented Derbyshire Schools at the English Schools Cross Country Championships at Castle Donnington.
