Despite mixed weather over the last few weeks, our boys have been undeterred and busy competing not only in cricket and tennis but also athletics, golf and swimming – to name a few!
Brothers Owain and Rhys Harries enjoyed a highly successful day at the recent Bedfordshire Athletics County Championships. Owain (Y6) competed in three events: the high jump, 800m and 100m, and by the end of the day he held medals in each: gold and the county champion title in the high jump, silver for the 800m and bronze for the 100m. Rhys (Y8) also earned a county champion title when he won gold in the javelin. Our congratulations go to them both!
On the fairway, Shaun Thomas (Y8), Isaac Talbot, (Y8) Dale Sirivisal (Y7) and William Mowe (Y6) competed in the Wellington Salver at Wellington School on 12 May and after 18 holes finished a commendable fifth place (nett score) in the team competition. Dale Sirivisal also stepped up to help the Upper School team at their recent friendly against Uppingham and was one of the winning pairs in the 3-0 victory. Great results all round!
