In October Alice B (L4) competed in the Southern Region Level 3 junior gymnastics competition in Southampton. She won gold on floor and bronze on vault. Unfortunately she injured herself warming up for her bar routine. A few weeks later however, she has put it behind her coming second on the bar in her first competition back after injury.

National Schools Netball Competition
This exeat Saturday the U14, U16 and U18 netball teams played in the county round of the National Schools Netball Championships. The U14s had a tough draw playing schools like The Marist and Newlands. They placed fourth overall in their pool.
The U16s played 6 matches, winning 4 and losing 2. They placed 3rd in their pool, narrowly missing out on going through to the semi-finals by just one goal.
The U18s bravely went with just 7 players which is really challenging at that level. Thank you to Bella W (L5) for playing up from U15 to U18 level to enable the seniors to have a full team.
