Mrs Caroline Treacy, Director of Sport
The past few weeks of glorious weather have seen plenty of sporting action, with team and individual successes.
Our U12 athletics team (main photo) had an exceptional afternoon at the District Championships, finishing runners up. Among the many excellent performances by everyone in the team, there were top three places for Daisy L (1st in 1500m and 2nd in 800m), Amaya S (1st in high jump and 2nd in shot put) and Odette B (2nd in javelin). Team captain Amaya said: “Our very enthusiastic and strong team of talented athletes performed with determination and great competitive attitude throughout the afternoon. From the starting gun to the finish line, our track athletes showed tremendous speed and stamina in their events and in the field, lots of strength and perseverance.”
Our U13 athletics team (pictured below) took 6th place in the District Championships, with 2nd place for Chloe R in the 300m and 3rd for Theodora P in the javelin.
Congratulations to Chloe B, Year 10 and Eliska S, Year 9 (both pictured below) who represented South Surrey at the recent County Championships. Chloe competed in the Inter-Girls 300m and Eliska jumped a season’s personal best in the Junior Girls high jump.
In cricket, our U12B team won against Oxted School, while the U15s beat Lingfield College.
In less summery, though excellent, hockey news, Lower Sixth sport scholar Rosie J has been selected for the Wimbledon Talent Academy. Rosie will compete in the TA tournament, which is the first round of England trials. Each competing team includes four 17-year-olds (including Rose), who will be scouted for the next round of the U18 England trials. Good luck, Rosie!
Attention now turns to next week’s Sports Day, where everyone will have an opportunity to see our wonderful athletes in action as they compete for the House Athletics Cup and the Victrix Ludorum.
