British Independent Schools Ski Races

Two junior school teams competed at the British Independent Schools Ski Racing Championships in Hemel Hempstead at the end of September.

On a particularly icy course and competing against 150 girls and boys from other schools the U10 and U12 teams did exceptionally well and improved on their times from last year.

In the U10 girls competition Holly Gates gained 7th place with an overall time of 19.61 from two runs. Esme Goulding, Jessica Lapsa and Lucia Barling came in 16th, 18th and 20th respectively.

In the U12 girls competition Daisy Gates also gained 7th place with an overall time of 18.59 from two runs. Sasha Law, Katya Longden and Izzy Green came in 11th, 17th and 27th respectively.

Accompanying teacher Kate Grosscurth said “I was most impressed with the girls’ teamwork and good sportsmanship”.
