On 15 October 2022, Second Year pupil Evie came first in the Under 16 Junior Great South Run in Southsea, completing 2.5km in just 8.32 minutes.
In addition, as the first girl from a Portsmouth postcode to win the event, Evie also won a special trophy, ‘The Christine Weeks Cup', which was officially presented to her by the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth.
Christine Weeks was one of the driving forces behind the Great South Run and her contribution to Hampshire Athletics over several decades was considerable. The cup is now presented annually in her memory to the first boy and girl in the Junior Great South from a Portsmouth postcode.
Evie had a truly special time with the Lord Mayor, enjoying afternoon tea and a tour of the Guildhall. She was very proud to receive her own version of the cup to keep.
Well done, Evie!
