The End of Term Sports Report

Friday 31st March 2017

Mrs Burley, Director of Sport, had initially thought there was no need for a report as it was a quiet week, however how wrong could she be. Read below to find out about more stunning sporting achievements in this ‘quiet week’ from our Queen Anne’s athletes.

Rowing

Hot on the heels of the QA rowers putting the staff to shame in the rowathon both QABC Women’s Junior 18 and 16 quads competed at the Junior Sculling Regatta last Friday at the London 2012 Olympic Rowing Lake. The Women’s junior 18 quad placed 29th and the Women’s junior 16 quad placed 33rd.

For a first serious official race at a Sculling Regatta which had all of the best rowing schools taking part this was a really successful day. The coaches gathered stats on the top speeds of rival crews, so that they can refine the training programme during the Easter Portugal training camp and beyond as they look to compete at the National Schools Regatta in May.

Dance

On Sunday a troupe of 25 Queen Anne’s dancers, a combination of Junior and Senior Dance Companies, descended upon the Wilde Theatre at South Hill Park for Lift Off Dance Festival. Here they performed ‘Día de los Muertos’, a dance based on the Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’. They were dancing amongst many fantastic groups of varying styles and ages giving a powerful performance and represented dance at Queen Anne’s excellently!

Biathlon

Now to a sister act in a notoriously physically tough sport. Amber and Olive competed in the British Biathlon championships last weekend at Crystal Palace. The competition was fierce with the fastest 1600m in 5 mins 04secs and fastest 100m swim in one minute dead. Both girls got PBs and came out higher ranked than their initial qualifying positions.

Athletics

Zara Obamakinwa competed last weekend at the Kent County Indoor Athletics Championships at Lee Valley Sports Park, one of the UK Athletics High Performance Centres. She won the shot with a distance of 11m76 and is now ranked 4th nationally for her age category.

Another person with national aspirations is Sophie Wulfinghoff, who found out last week that she has successfully switched from high level synchro onto the English Institute of Sport fast track programme for judo, looking to work with a highly select number of athletes that have the capacity to potentially compete and win medals on the world stage in judo. Sophie has decided that it might be time to join a judo club having never participated in the sport until about 4 months ago!

Basketball

Another group venturing into new territory is the Queen Anne’s basketball team who had their inaugural match against a Reading Rockets junior team last Saturday. These girls have really committed to the sport and have been training regularly with Miss Lutz. Let’s just say that neither side was taking any prisoners and play was intense!

Young Umpires

Congratulations go to Hannah Khalique, Yas Hatton, Millie Bowater and Georgie Ralston who had a gruelling test to pass their netball young umpires award last week. We also want to thank them for their help this season umpiring some of the younger netball teams.
