9:00am Friday 1st November 2013 in Local news
Bradford Bulls player Chev Walker handed out the prizes at a school’s inaugural sports award evening.
The rugby star was guest of honour at the event, held to celebrate the successes of Benton Park’s physical education department.
The Rawdon school says it currently has record numbers of students involved in sports clubs at the school, taking part in rock climbing, trampolining, dance, football, rugby, basketball and boxercise.
A spokesman for the school said: “With all this hard work and dedication comes success and the PE department was very keen to showcase all the amazing achievements of so many of our students with what proved to be a spectacular evening.”
It was hosted by BBC Radio Yorkshire breakfast presenter Steve Bailey.
Students received awards for winning trophies – the junior girls’ athletics team were crowned gold medallists with the boys’ tennis team winning the school’s league.
Other awards were given for effort and improvement. Two awards were handed to sixth form students in recognition of sporting dedication.
