Queen Anne’s Sports News

Tuesday 6th February 2018

A round up of all the latest sports news in the week commencing Monday 29 January 2018.

Swimming

The U12 and U14 swim squads went to Downe House for their winter gala, with St Swithun’s and St Mary’s Calne.

The U12’s put in a really determined team display, with a very small squad.

The U14s had some excellent races, with Claudia, Catrin and Ruby all winning their races. Overall they placed a very creditable second.

The school Inter-House swimming gala was a fabulous event with all five houses giving it their all in the water and poolside.  The atmosphere in the pool was electric, girls supporting their team mates at full volume, as every point really mattered.

 

The final placings after taking into account the results from the L4, inter and senior competitions are as follows:

5th Maddock

4th Wilkins

3rd Ffyler

2nd Webbe

1st Wisdome

Congratulations to Wisdome House for being the Inter-House Swimming Champions 2018

 

Rowing

Alicia B, Maya M, Philippa M, Charlotte W raced at Hampton Head on Sunday 28 January. They were racing up an age category, but still managed to come 19th out of 25, only a minute behind the winners. In the early stages of their racing career this is an excellent result.
