Sports News - July 2018
The swimming season drew to a exciting close with Junior House Swimming. The tropical poolside temperatures didn’t hinder the girls, with an amazing 50 new PB’s and four House Swimming Records broken (with St Helen’s gaining the LC3 Medley relay, and Sidney Lodge claiming the LC3 Free and both Open relays).
Junior House honours went to Sidney Lodge, St Margaret’s claimed the Junior Guild Relay title and Glenlee took the best overall house accolade. The spread of House achievements reflects the talent across the Houses and show just how competitive House Swimming has been this year.

Lower College Celebration of Sport
Lower College Sport finished on a high, with an fun-filled evening dedicated to celebrating the girls' successes this year. The event gives us the opportunity to acknowledge girls who have shown amazing commitment, made significant progress, been excellent ambassadors or achieved an exceptional sporting accolade.
The evening included a range of activities in between the awards and team celebrations, including a ‘Million Pound Drop’ sporting game and a head-to-head football penalty shoot out against Mr Abini, between the year groups, parents and staff, as well as many other highlights.
Rosie Allison, Severn Stars Netball player, was the guest of honour, providing the audience with an inspirational speech and awarding the prizes.
Well done to all the girls and thank you to the parents and guests for supporting Sport and Physical Education in Lower College this year.
