A Ponteland High School student put in an excellent performance at the Northumberland School Games Rowing Championships.
Catherine Woods did brilliantly to finish second in her year-group category at the event, which took place in December at Cambois Rowing Club. As a result, the Year 9 pupil has qualified to represent Northumberland at the Regional Finals in January.
Head of PE at Ponteland High, Allan Atkinson, said: “Catherine is a wonderful young lady with a steely determination to do well.
“We are very proud of her achievements.”
