Forget the Fantastic Four – meet our Elite Eleven

Forget the Fantastic Four – meet our Elite Eleven

Our team of eleven motivated Year 10 students travelled to Boston College last week to compete in the annual Elite Eleven Competition where Cowley Academy finished 3rd out of the whole of Lincolnshire.

Elite Eleven is a mixed inter-school sporting competition that involves 12 secondary schools from across Lincolnshire who compete against each other in a variety of indoor sporting challenges.

The competition took place at Boston College’s Peter Paine Performance Centre with challenges based around reaction speed, memory, agility and fitness plus sports activities such as power cycling, crazy golf, New Age Kurling, football targets, netball shooting and table tennis rallies.

The aim of the competition is to battle it out against other schools to win the most points whilst also testing the student’s commitment, teamwork and motivation.

At the end of the competition and before the results were announced, there was an inspirational talk from local bodybuilder and personal trainer Josh Blue.

Mr James Brader, Teacher of PE at Cowley Academy said “The whole team worked tremendously well together and consistently scored some of the highest points in many of the activities. To achieve third place out of all the schools is an excellent result and reflection of their determination and hard work throughout the day. Well done to everyone involved – they were great representatives for Cowley Academy.”
