Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 12th June 2017

Read the latest round up of sports news from Queen Anne’s since half term.

Tennis

In the lead up to half term, there were tennis matches played against Bradfield and Denefield.

U15 B v Bradfield – Lost 10 – 2

U14 A v Denefield – Won 12 – 0

Rowing

Queen Anne’s Boat Club took a squad of 8 athletes to National Schools Regatta on Sunday 28th May at the London Olympic venue, Eton Dorney. This was a big stepping stone for the Boat Club as this is the biggest junior regatta that takes place in the country, with over 5000 competitors.

Both of the Queen Anne’s quads started the day with a time trial over 1750m, where they had to come in the top 28 in the country – our J18s placed 22nd and our J16s placed 24th. This meant that both crews progressed through to the D finals where our J18s placed 1st and our J16s placed 5th in their respective finals.

Thanks go to the parents for their support on the day and to Maya McCarthy and Emily Batchelor who were part of the NSR team that helped film the event for YouTube!

There were 4 other girls taking part from Queen Anne’s School for their own Boat Clubs. It is great to have such a big contingent from QAS at the event and congratulations go to all of the girls involved.

Track and Field Cup

The junior Athletics team went to Downe Grange Sports Ground in Basingstoke on Wednesday for the regional B Final of the ESAA Track and Field Cup. The standard was definitely higher than in the area round and at half time after all the track events, we were lying in 2nd place.

After a super field events session the girls went on to win the whole Regional B final.

There will be more athletics news to come next week as several girls competed in the Berkshire County Track and Field Championships on Saturday.

Road to Wimbledon Competition

On Saturday, Queen Anne’s hosted its annual Road to Wimbledon tournament. A national competition where girls from L4, 4 and U4 play tennis with the aim of reaching the finals which are played at Wimbledon!

It was a great competition and well done to Lexis who won the main competition and Lucy who won the plate!

Dance

The Dance show this Friday and Saturday night was a culmination of a year’s work and gave the girls from L4 to L6 the chance to show what they have been working so hard on this year. There was great diversity in dance style and all the girls performed with great intensity and to a high standard. We hope to bring you some pictures soon!
