On Friday last week 21 girls headed to Bath University for the Prior Park school Biathlon Time Trials.
The U12 girls started the day with their 50m swim, and Emily and Sophie both secured great times under 36 seconds, closely followed by Rebecca, Ellie, and Izzie all under 50 seconds and Kitty under 60. They then headed to the track for their 800m run. All the girls were in the same heat and this saw a great race with Lottie (Year 7) and Sophie neck and neck all the way around, changing the lead until the last 180m when Lottie had a final spurt to win the heat with Sophie and Emily not far behind. All the girls did so well and should be congratulated on their efforts. We had very pleasing results with Sophie winning the event, Lottie coming 4th, and Emily sixth. The Year 6 team took silver, a fantastic achievement for Sophie, Emily and Ellie.
The U11 and U10 girls arrived with Miss Hughes at lunchtime and were eager to get going. They all swam well with many competing for the first time in a 50m pool and then headed to the more familiar 800m track. Isla took an early lead in her race, while Amelie, Hettie and Evie all had strong finishes in their heats. Overall Amelie came 11th in the U10 as an individual and as a team with Cesca and Lily, they came third.
A huge well done to all the girls who took part:
U12: Kitty, Rebecca, Ellie, Emily, Sophie, Izzie, Lottie
U11: Catherine, Tilly, Jojo, Isla, Charlotte, Bella, Poppy, Hettie, Evie
U10: Cesca, Lily, Jessica, Amelie
