Army Cadet Athletics Success for Elise


Pershore High School student, Elise Blake (15) from Norton, competed in the Army Cadet National Athletics at Grantham in Lincolnshire, having gained a place to represent the Midland region in the 800 metres and 200 metres.


In the Midland competition, Elise had competed at 200 metres for her first time and won so she was very nervous about the race at Grantham where she was competing with other cadets in her age group from across the UK.


Elise gained a Silver in 800 metres, only missing out on Gold by one second and came a very respectable 4th in the 200 metres, narrowly missing out on a Bronze.
