Junior biathlon medal winners

Eight girls from Years 5 and 6 competed in the south regional schools’ biathlon championships on Saturday, 5th November.  The girls all did incredibly well; they achieved personal bests in the 500 metres run and 50 metres swim against girls from Hampshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire. 

Many congratulations to Alla Garside from Winchester who won the Year 6 girls’ event to become Hampshire and regional champion.  In the team event Alla, Emily C, Harriet S and Natasha finished in second place, with Harriet W, Alice C, Phoebe and Lucy H also competing extremely well for St Swithun’s.
