WELSHPOOL High School celebrated the sporting year at its annual awards last week.

Welsh international stars Adele Nicoll and Andy Davies led a cast of stars of yesteryear in marking start of a new era with the school set to open new sports facilities next year.

The school toasted the Gareth Oldham Cup for a third successive year while its athletics team was recognised with the Pave Aways Trophy following a remarkable year, led by Ryan Edwards defending his Welsh long jump title.

Edwards, Carwyn Owen, Maddie Griffiths and Callum Morgan represented Wales at athletics while bowler Conor Buckley, swimmer Morgan Jones, boxer Mia Kaye, judoka Joshua Whitehouse, Ffion Lovatt, Seren Lovatt, Reuben Lovatt and Rhys Handel, mixed martial arts star Katie Roberts and footballer Max Williams received international caps.

Dottie Evans received the Ceri Broughall Cup with Carwyn Owen awarded the Andy Morris Cup while the Excellence Cup for Key Stage Three was presented to Maddie Griffiths and Ryan Edwards went home with the Bernie Jones Cup.

Welshpool High School head of PE Wendy Langford said: “A big thank you to Pave Aways for their kind sponsorship. Without this contribution we would not have been able to run the event and celebrate sporting achievement.”
