Year 8 Girls Sportshall Athletics Success

The Winston Y8 Girls Sportshall Athletics Team recently competed in the P&G Surrey Games County finals and came away champions!!!  Millie Cave, Paige Hewitt, Ellie Sharpe, Lucie Scuse, Victory Ogbuike, Sarah Bindschedler, Charlotte Gray and Katie Warren dug in deep, and pulled together to come away victorious!  Competing at Guildford Spectrum on Tuesday 12th March, the team were involved in several individual and team running events, as well as field events such as the shot putt, standing long jump, vertical jump and the triple jump.  The team achieved a grand total of 194pts, just beating there closest competitor, Ashcombe School, by 1pt.  The girls now progress onto the South East Regional stage at Surrey Sports Park on Thursday 28th March, where they will face some tough competition.  They are extremely determined to succeed, and I wish them the best of luck for the final.  Fingers crossed they will experience another thoroughly enjoyable event and come away with another well-deserved medal!

Good Luck Girls,
