Queen Anne’s Sports News

Tuesday 13th March 2018

A round up of all the latest sports news in the week commencing Monday 26 February 2018.

Despite the snow and adverse weather conditions we still saw fantastic matches and competitions.

Swimming

The U12 and U14 swim squads competed against Newlands School last week.

Both squads competed against a mixed set of age groups and produced some excellent performances, really shined during the relays. Because of the varied age difference in the oppositions ranks – scores were not recorded.
