A weekend of remarkable sporting achievements for our students
Beaconsfield High School’s students have once again proven their sporting talent, exceptional work ethic and determination, with remarkable outcomes in both indoor hockey and gymnastics championships.
The under 18 indoor hockey team competed in the Girls’ Schools Super 6s Championships at Bromsgrove School over the weekend, coming third in the competition and the only state school to make it to the finals. Two teams per region qualify for the finals and play off in two pools of five, with cross-over semi-finals leading to the final to decide who will be national champions. The team went all the way to the semi-final before being narrowly beaten by Cranleigh, with Repton taking the title.
The under 19 and under 14 gymnastics teams competed in the Milano Trio event on Sunday at the school’s own sports hall, with both teams achieving exceptional scores to take the titles of Regional Champions for their categories. Both teams had to perform an individual vault, an individual floor routine and a team floor routine. Their scores were then combined to give a total score for the team. Both teams now go on to compete in the National Championships
The under 18 indoor hockey team is: Sophia Everitt, Abby Wagge, Beth Wagge, Jenna Wyllie, Caroline Spence, Lauren Torley, Jade Quelch, Sophia Everitt and Lauren Gallagher.
The under 19 gymnastics team is: Hannah Selli, Kendra Morris and Hannah Aldridge. The under 14 gymnastics team is: Natasha Nowers, Liska Nowers, Lola Gill, Kira Cosgrove and Daisy Barrows.
Rachel Smith, Head Teacher at Beaconsfield High School, comments: “I am incredibly proud of all the students who competed across the competitions this weekend. Once again their remarkable sporting prowess, combined with their teamwork, focus and motivation, have resulted in success for themselves and their school. These results are also testament to how hard our teaching staff work to develop the students’ individual potentials, in order that they progress in a collaborative world. After such a fantastic start to the year I have no doubt I will be announcing many more student successes in 2017.”
The sports achievements don’t end there. Beaconsfield High School’s under 16 outdoor hockey team has already secured its place at the National Finals, to be played at Lee Valley Olympic Stadium on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd March, putting them in the top 8 in the country.
