Each member of the third, second and first place teams also received an individual prize, ranging from fitness trackers and portable speakers to vouchers.

Sports lecturer Mark Bridges: “It has been great to see so many schools competing at this year’s Elite Eleven.

“I would like to congratulate all of the competitors who have displayed their sporting excellence as they tackled a number of physical and skill related activities.

“Elite Eleven provides a great opportunity for learners to step outside of their comfort zone and work together to achieve the same goal. I would like to congratulate all competitors and highlight the support of our sponsors.”
