Catrin Patterson in the L4s raced in the Harbour Cup and Club Championships at Cookham Reach Sailing Club the weekend before last. 18 boats raced (optimists and toppers) with children from 8 to 16 sailing them. She won both competitions and the club achievement an award. Well done, Catrin.
Amelia Shaw competed in an international trampoline competition in Prague. She competed for her club and performed a really clean routine and finished 13th out of 40 overall and was the third placed competitor.
The first round of the Cross Country Cup was held at Reading Blue Coat School. The U13 and U15 teams faced a challenging course with some steep downhills and long up hills. Both teams came 8th out of 11 teams. The highest placed in runner in the U13 team was Olive Richards who placed 24th out of 67 runners. In the U15 team it was Emmeline Bolton who placed 21st out of 61 runners.
There were U15, U14 and U13 matches held against St George’s Ascot. With large numbers of girls out at county netball, our teams were not at full strength but we still won two matches. Overall, we won two out of three matches.
The U12A lacrosse team played an internal fixture against the U13B team.
The U16 and Senior netball teams have had a busy week with challenging matches against Beaconsfield High on Wednesday to stretch them before the county tournament on Saturday.
The U14, U16 and U19 netball teams competed in the county round of the National Schools’ Netball Championships on Saturday. There were a large number of teams playing and the standard was high. All three teams were at full stretch and played to their maximum.
The U16 team reached the finals and qualify for the regional round in January. Special mention goes to Alex Griffin who should have been in the team photo but was busy being bandaged up after a nasty injury to her knee.
The weekend before last, 30 U14 netball players went to Condover Hall to experience tournament play. There were eight teams in their age category and the U14A team narrowly missed out on reaching the finals by one goal.
