Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 8th May 2017

Read all about the latest sports news from Queen Anne’s since the start of the start of the new term.

Rowing

On the 31 March Queen Anne’s Boat Club left for their first ever rowing camp to Figueira Da Foz in Portugal. We went with the Oratory school and spent five days there.

The lake they were training on was 2 kilometres long, a similar size to Dorney Lake where The National Schools will be held, so it was an excellent opportunity to help prepare for this major competition.

With two intense training sessions a day and regular races against the Oratory, who were also there training, the Queen Anne’s rowers managed across 5 days to row 110km!

Eleanor Blois-Brooke went on after the camp to capitalise on her training and competed at the Ghent International Spring Regatta. Competing against teams a year older, she came back with three gold medals for being the fastest J15 amongst J16 teams.

Izzy Richards competed at Wallingford in very poor conditions and came 3rd out of 14 in the J18 double and was only 6 seconds off the winner’s time.

Amy Howard  went up to Nottingham to compete as part of an 8 in a national event called Junior Inter-regional Regatta. They not only picked up some gold medals but they also won the Cambridge Rose Bowl for the fastest time out of all the people who competed!

Meanwhile Ella Harris is now training 6 days a week with the rowing GB start programme and was on training camp in the Easter holidays in Hazelwinkle in Belgium. She has achieved such a fast sprint erg time that she is second on the GB start leader board, beaten only by a 23 year old.

The future certainly looks bright for Queen Anne’s Rowing!

Lacrosse

Over the Easter holidays lots of Queen Anne’s U14’s and some U13 girls heading to St. Marys Calne to trial for the England Lacrosse Academy. This is a talent pathway with the final aim of representing Team England. It is exciting that so many Queen Anne’s girls were invited to join the programme.

Hockey

Jessica Roberts has been playing for Readings U18 Hockey Premier team this year. After winning the Home Counties Girls League, they went on to reach the U18 National Cup Finals played on the Olympic pitch at Lee Valley Hockey Club.
