The 120-member Somerset Athletics Team took out the coveted APS Athletics Championship for the 2nd consecutive year last Wednesday. Many thanks to our talented coaches, led by Chris Lewis, Stephanie Oppermann (Track), Phil Newton (Jumps), Kirsty Williams, Jenny Wood (Throws) and our support coaches.

In what was always going to be a difficult task in retaining the title, our athletes competed superbly all day, concluding with team captains** Julia Wright-Smith** and James Campbell lifting the trophy.
