Once again, Caterham Rotary has celebrated the sporting excellence of local students by awarding three prizes in their annual Sporting Excellence competition. This is the 8th year of this annual Sporting Excellence competition

All three prize winners, who come from Warlingham School, recently attended a lunch and award ceremony with Rotarians where their certificates and prize money were presented by Walter Hill who was a teacher at de Stafford School Caterham all of his career and is now currently Road Race Secretary to the British Masters Athletics Federation.

The first prize went to Hannah Dawson who is an extremely promising basketball player who has already captained the national team at under 15.  She has ambitions to eventually go to America to pursue her basketball career.

Second place went to Andrew Jones who competes nationally for England in trampolining. His ambition is to compete for GB in the Olympics.

The third-place award was awarded to Luca Barretta who has competed in the English 50m Freestyle event. His sports teacher Phillipa Hurst commented “Luca has the dedication to get to the very top and hopefully compete for Team GB in the years ahead.”

Andy Parr President of Caterham Rotary Club commented “All three students are excelling in their individual sports and their prize money will go towards helping them pursue their sporting ambitions for the future.
