Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 3rd December 2018

A round-up of all the latest sports news in the week commencing Monday 3 December 2018.

 

Lacrosse

Amy I (L5)  played for the U19 Badgers team at SuperCounties Lacrosse.

They were undefeated, and Amy was voted Most Valuable Player for the team. They will now compete at the National Super Counties in the Spring.

 

      

 

Biathlon and Pentathlon

Libby R (L4) finished 7th (out of 56) at British Modern Biathlon Championships in Leeds, with very strong run and swim personal bests in both the 50m swim and 800m run events.

 

She also won the Team Gold medal with her Pentathlon club team mates and was the highest ranked finisher overall from PentathlonGB South region. Over 300 U12 girls trialled to qualify for this event and 56 girls competed at the championships.

 

         

 

Swimming

The U15 and U13 swim squads competed in the Wycombe Abbey Invitational Gala. Other schools competing were Headington, Pipers Corner and St Helen’s and St Katharine’s.

The U15 teams were dominant in the relays and combined with some super individual performances came away with second place in the U15A competition and 1st place in the U15B competition.

The U13s didn’t want to be left out and they too performed strongly with many individual  wins and as a result their B team squad also came in 1st place.

 

U15 swim squad:
Catrin P (U4), Louisa H (U4), Georgina L (L5), Olive R (L5), Ruby M (L5), Emily R (U4), Claudia M (U4), Harriet S (L5)

 

U13 swim squad: 
Beau B (4), Emily W (4), Annabel H (L4), Libby R (L4), Phelix B (L4), Alice R (L4), Livvy D (L4), Gracie J (4)

 

Rowing

Although the lacrosse and netball matches were cancelled on Saturday, the rowers were out in force. 20 girls, ranging from U4 to U6 were out on the water training hard.

 

      

 

Trampolining

Sunday was the first round of the National Schools Trampoline Championships. We entered two novice teams and had two performers in the elite category.

The year 7-8 novice team started off the day and for two of them, it was their first ever trampoline competition. They placed first overall as a team and Alice B (4) won the individual competition.

 

      

 

The two competitors in the elite categories were up next, with nearly every move a somersault. They really have led the way in showing the novice teams what they can aspire to. Amelia S (U4) won the Elite year 7-9 category.

 

                

 

The novice year 9-10 team were up last and had hard acts to follow. They kept their nerve and performed brilliantly, gaining the team 2nd place, with Louisa H (U4) placing second individually and Claudia M (U4) 3rd.

 

      

 

As a result both teams have qualified for the zonals, with Alice, Louisa, Claudia and Amelia qualifiying as individuals as well.
