Track & Field

8 girls represented Reading at the Berkshire County Track and Field Championships and faced some tough opposition.

Both Maisie Pennant and Georgie Kent reached the finals of the 300m and 100m respectively, with Georgie winning the U17 girls 100m. Bella Cooper came 3rd in the high jump.

Zara Obamakinwa threw over 30m in the discus achieving the national qualifying distance and has therefore been selected to represent Berkshire at the national ESAA Track & Field Championships at Alexander Stadium in Birmingham in early July.

Basketball

The Queen Anne’s basketball team faced high class opposition on Saturday from 3 teams, two were southern region teams and one a mixed age group girls team from Reading Rockets. For their second fixture ever it was very hard work, but they kept the pressure on right until the very last buzzer.

Swimming

The U12 and U15 swim teams, with reduced squads, enjoyed a great fixture against Newlands School on Wednesday evening. Both teams showed great spirit with girls swimming many extra legs than normal.

U15s – Queen Anne’s 53 Newlands 69

U12s – Queen Anne’s 54 Newlands 58

Tennis

On Monday the U15B, U14A and U13A teams all beat The Abbey with a clean sweep of victories. The U13 match was especially important as it meant that the U13A team have qualified for the county semi-finals of the Aegon competition and will be playing Claire’s Court in that match next week. Well done to Lexie Davies, Amy Ivey, Kate Litherland and  Holly Bureau and also to Charlotte Goforth and Emma Bourne who stepped in at the last minute for this particular match to ensure we went through to the next round.

On Wednesday, six girls travelled to Eastbourne to play in the annual GSA tennis tournament. It was an incredibly tough day of tennis against some amazing competition. Overall the 1sts placed 4th, the U14’s placed 4th and the U12’s placed 10th. Well done to all the girls involved.
