Ashfield Post 16 Uniformed Services student Natatia Williams is making quite a name for herself within the athletics community. From October 2015, she has represented Notts Athletics Club in the North Midlands Cross Country League in which she has been competing both as an individual and as part of the team. Points are awarded in the competition based on the position you finish in each of a series of races, and Natatia’s consistently impressive finishes meant that she finished the competition as U20 Women’s Champion, and also that her team finished top of the leader board, having fought off competition from many other teams.
Natatia is pictured here holding the plaque that was awarded to her team, the trophy that she won as an individual, and she is also sporting a bronze medal from the Schools Cross Country Competition where she qualified for the English Schools Championships.
Mr Kris Lockhart, Head of P.E. at Ashfield School, said of Natatia’s achievements: “Hard work, discipline, persistence and dedication to her goals mean that Natatia reaps what she sows. I’m absolutely delighted for her!”
