A Sleaford High School student was recognised for her continued success at the Lincolnshire Sports Awards.

Year 12A pupil Bella Williams was crowned Young Lincolnshire Sports Woman of the Year at the recent awards ceremony.

Bella, of Digby, represented England as part of the Mountain Running Team, was part of the winning team in the Junior Home Internationals, and took part in the International Youth Cup.

She is currently Northern 3k Champion but is now focusing her attention on mountain running.

Following a stressful time taking her GCSEs in Year 11, Bella continued to train hard and she is now in the process of selecting an American university, several of which offer a full scholarship for her track, cross country and academic achievements.
