Queen Anne’s Sports News

Friday 15th June 2018

A round up of all the latest sports news.

Ruby M

Those of you who have wobbled your way round an icerink, know how easy it looks but how hard it actually is in reality. Ruby M is one of several Queen Anne’s girls who ice skates in her spare time and she has just successfully passed her National Ice Skating Association Level 3 test. This is a milestone test as this is the level where the skating elements get harder and the judging becomes more stringent, so well done Ruby a really good achievement.

 

Amelia S

Amelia S had two national trampoline qualifier competitions over half term –the  National League qualifiers in Cardiff and British qualifiers in Sheffield. She came home with 2 bronze medals in individual at both and a silver in synchro at Cardiff , this means  she has qualified for the national finals at both events.

Rowing

Summer is upon us and the rowing regattas are coming thick and fast.

Camille B and her teammate Izzy competed for Reading Rowing Club and won the Walton and Weybridge Regatta WJ15 Double Sculls. They had to win quarter finals, semi-finals and finals, with each race over a 1000m

National Schools Regatta 1

Meanwhile Scarlette R raced in the WJ14 coxed quad crew at the National Schools Regatta with her club, the Tideway Scullers. After the time trials in which 60 crews competed, they qualified as 17th fastest for the C finals in which they then placed 2nd.

QABC

QABC were also at the National Schools Regatta with 4 of our senior girls, competing in the Junior Women’s U18 coxless quads at National Schools Regatta. They came 15th out of 40 crews in the time trials, narrowly missing out on the A/B finals. In the C final they placed third, following quite a tussle with Henley Boat Club who placed 2nd behind Sir William Borlase’s A crew. This is out highest placing to date in this event and now their aim is to qualify for Women’s Henley.

Trials for National Lacrosse Academy

4 girls have recently been selected to trial for the National Lacrosse Academy. This is where the Junior England squads are selected from, so this is a significant achievement and a step closer to the girls representing their country (Millie B, Livvy G, Charlotte D, Izzy Z)

Bella B

Bella B is in the midst of her A Levels right now, but has been buoyed up by the very exciting news that she has been appointed Joint Captain of the England Women’s U20 Lacrosse Team for the European Championships this summer.

Tennis

There were tennis matches this week against Downe House.

QAS U15A won 7-6
Player of the match: Amelia H, Commended Amy I

QAS U13B lost 8-4
Player of the match: Lucy Blomfield, Commended Hettie W

Athletics DH

There was also an athletics fixture against Downe House this weekend. Due to the number of events on this weekend we were struggling with numbers, but I would like to thank all the girls who competed as they had to double and treble up in events in several instances to ensure we could honour the fixture.

Gratifyingly several girls achieved personal bests, which always makes it worthwhile. In the U13 team Lara R achieved new personal bests in both 200m and javelin, winning both events. For several girls this was a competition sharpener for the Regional A finals on Wednesday at Millfield.

Berks county

This Saturday was also the date of the Berkshire County Track and Field Championships, with 13 Queen Anne’s girls selected to represent Reading.

Zara O’s discus throw of 35m63cm not only won the event on the day, but beat the English Schools Qualifying Standard as well as the National  Qualifying Standard. As a result she will for the second year in a row be representing Berkshire at the English Schools Track and Field Championships at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham in mid July.

Dance Show

Many of the athletes competing on Saturday returned to Queen Anne’s and then performed in the annual dance show, this year called Celebrate 2018.  I am sure that those of you who watched it were as impressed as I was by the standard of the dance. It is also really lovely to see how dance brings together girls from across every year group in the school at once. None of it would be possible without the three lovely dance staff, all of you who kindly did hair, make up, lighting etc and of course the commitment of the girls to want to produce a spectacle to be proud of.
