Tough HLS6 Students Are Up To The Challenge!

Three Higham Lane School Sixth Form students showed true grit and determination while competing in the Midlands leg of the Tough Mudder challenge.

The trio, comprising Jess, Fallon and Karen, were part of a five-strong team who tackled the strength-sapping course at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire.

Out of the sell-out 12,000 field, they were the youngest team taking part, which earned them lots of respect from fellow Mudders while tackling the gruelling 12-mile circuit of hills, mud, wet grass and plenty of insane obstacles.

The girls were competing under the banner of Warwickshire Association of Youth Clubs, who were overjoyed with their fund-raising achievement.

WAYC has now invited the team and their families to a celebration event in July, when the charity will be unveiling a new name, logo and branding.
