MIDHURST Rother College (MRC) is excelling both on and off the track.

While they honoured their young sporting stars at Sports Personality of the Year 2013, three MRC students also won awards at the United Learning ‘Best in Everyone’ awards.

These went to Tiffany Underdown, Tom Cain and Jackson Green.

The college welcomed international athlete and Sky Sports mentor, Lesley Owusu as a guest speaker at their sports evening, and overall College Sports Personality of 2013 went to Year 11 pupil Dan Eeles.

Hayley Kemp, head of P.E., said: “Dan is a credit to himself and to MRC.

“He works and trains very hard and is an amazing role model.”

Dan said: “This is just such a great honour.

“I have received constant support and encouragement from students and staff throughout the development of my running career so am thrilled to know they think I’m doing them proud!

“My next target is to reach the World U18 Championships.”
