In a keenly fought contest the athletic cadets of Central and East Region, after giving their all, secured a tremendous second place marginally behind the winning team from London and South East Region in the Inter Region Athletics Championships.
The Central and East cadets showed their mettle and determination throughout the competition held at the excellent Grantham Athletic Stadium. In all classes of all the disciplines, Central and East figured strongly in the results which culminated in a fine array of silverware. However, London and South East Region amassed a few more points relegating Central and East to second place.
Squadron Leader Michelle Worsnop, the Region’s Sports Officer, who has inspired the Region’s sporting cadets to achieve so much said: “ for cadets to have got to this event is a reflection on their excellence in their particular event. They are competing at the highest level of Air Cadet Sport, the top athletes out of almost 40,000 cadets. They are all to be congratulated”.
