Following on from her successes at both Wing and Region levels, Crowle Air Cadet A Mason (14) recently represented North Region in the Air Training Corps Athletics competition, achieving a Silver in her event.
Cadet Mason represented Crowle air Cadets at the South and West Yorkshire Wing Athletics competition. The event sees all the Squadrons in South and West Yorkshire Wing, 33 in total, compete in numerous athletic disciplines. During the event she attained Gold in the 100m and 200m sprint and Gold in the long jump. As such she was selected to represent South and West Yorkshire Wing in the North Region competition.
The North Region competition sees the best athletes from the 5 Wings in the North of England compete. Competitions at this level are generally considered to be the best within their Wing, so to be selected to compete is a real achievement. Cadet Mason achieved a Silver in her 200m sprint and a Gold in her 100m sprint. As such she was asked to represent North Region in the Air Training Corps athletics competition.
The Corps competition sees the best athletes from the 6 Regions that cover the whole of the UK compete. Cadet Mason was asked to represent North Region in the 100m sprint and achieved a Silver. This effectively places her second in the Air Training Corps for her age group in the 100m sprint. A great achievement for both Cadet Mason, Crowle Air Cadets, South and West Yorkshire Wing and North Region.
Flying Officer V Docherty, Sports Officer for Crowle Air Cadets, said “Cadet Mason’s achievement is fantastic. To come second in the whole Air Training Corps is a massive achievement. The Squadron are really proud of her and look forward to next year’s competition, where we hope she will do as well or better”
