Senior Girls Sports Day
The Senior Girls Sports Day was a tremendous success. Lots of sporting excellence on display, fantastic teamwork, sportsmanship and collaboration from all of the Houses and girls involved.
Stand out performers on the day based from their individual results (not including the relays) from;
Hannah Hale winning 2 gold and 2 bronze medals and Kate Webster who won 3 golds. The Victrix Ludorum for the best Year 7 performer on the day was awarded to Rachel Okoro, a phenomenal athlete winning 3 gold medals and 1 silver, congratulations!
Athletes who stood out on the day were Annabelle Ruinet who won 2 gold and 2 bronze medals, Lana Wallis won 2 gold and 2 silver medals, Harriet Worthington won 2 gold medals but the most successful performer of the day was Emily Taylor-West winning 3 gold and 1 bronze medal, fantastic!
In Year 9 Cassie Halpin and Lily Arnold both proved strong contenders winning many points for their House and both securing 3 gold medals. However Issy Byrne with her 2 gold and 2 silver medals won the Victrix Ludorum for Year 9.
The Year 10 girls saw Robyn Watkins and Toni Dibley both win 2 gold and 1 bronze medal, but with 3 gold medals and 1 bronze medal, Paige Odell was awarded the Year 10 Victrix Ludorum for her performances on the day, congratulations.
Jo Cox, Head of PE said;
“Whilst it is lovely to win medals, taking part, performing for your House, and above all, enjoyment are also key to success and as a department we do recognise those girls who have worked so hard and tried their best on the day but perhaps have not stood out for medal winning. In recognition of this we have the Axtell Cup for Perseverance but first we would like to congratulate both Joanna Cronk and Jessie Lindley for giving their absolute all in the 1500m race, they both ran their hearts out and left nothing on the track!! However, for her fabulous run of the 800m race which she paced really well, did not stop and although she was in last place she finished with a brilliant sprint to the line our Axtell Cup for Perseverance is this year awarded to Jaimie Stay of Year 8. Well done Jaimie.”
