Queen Anne’s Sports News
Monday 7th October 2019
A round-up of all the latest sports news in the week commencing Monday 7 October 2019.
Amelia W (U4) competes in orienteering and the weekend before last she competed as part of the Southern Central Squad at the Inter Regional Championships. For those who are uncertain what orienteering involves, navigational skills using a map and compass are required to move at speed from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain. Despite the heavy rain and tricky conditions underfoot Amelia placed 7th out of 30 girls in her age group!
Hannah S (4) has been playing football with Crystal Palace for the last 5 years, but in a bid to move training closer to home she has successfully trialed for the U14 Elite Talent ID squad with Oxford United – quite an achievement as she has only just turned 12!
Amelia S (L5) competed in the British Trampoline Championships in Birmingham the weekend before last and has qualified for the finals in DMT, Double Mini Trampoline. This means that this year she has successfully qualified for the League, English and British Championship finals, several of them up against GB squad members.
