On Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th February, Evie and Katherine (both SFC1) went to the GB Junior Rowing trials in Boston. On the Saturday, they both put in strong performances in the Single Scull and both improved on their times from the November trial. On the Sunday, they competed in the Double Scull finishing 14th overall. This is a fantastic achievement. Well done girls!
On Saturday 1st March, 15 CLC rowers competed for the College at Avon County Spring Head. An impressive 13 of these rowers came home clutching medals with CLC wins in the Junior 18 Single Scull (Za), Junior 18 Double Scull (Evie and Katherine), Novice Women’s Coxed Quad (Olivia, Yewande, Mya, Poppy and Pat), and Junior 15 Coxed Quad (Myra, Keira, Annabel, Ellie and Lasette).
Particular congratulations to the Junior 15 Quad who won in their first ever race together and the Junior 18 Double who were also the fastest women's double of the day.
The Senior A Tennis Team, consisting of Flora (SFC1), Tabitha (SFC2), Heidi (SFC1) and Tallulah (SFC1), beat Stanwell School from Wales to win a place in the Senior Students National Finals this weekend. They won convincingly 12-0 with no sets lost. Well done to all the girls, who now take their place in the top eight schools in the UK.
Congratulations to our Under 13 Cricket Team who won the district Lady Taverners Indoor Cricket Competition last Friday. All the girls played well and contributed to our victory. In the final, CLC batted first, scoring 79 for two; in reply, Pittville scored 40 off eight overs, also only losing two wickets. Player of the match was Aimee (LC2).
CLC Prep Netball Tournament
In a contrast to last year's event which was affected by snow, this year's Prep School Tournament saw a total of 28 teams partaking in an absolutely brilliant day of netball in glorious sunshine.
The U12s performed to a high standard throughout the tournament. There are many positives to take from their matches and lots to learn from tournament play. The girls were fantastic throughout, winning lots of games, but unfortunately missed out on qualifying for the semi-final.
Having more tournament experience really helped our U13s perform to an exceptionally high standard throughout their tournament. They did well to qualify out of a tough group, but unfortunately couldn’t keep up the intensity against a very strong Millfield team, losing narrowly in the semi-final.
Congratulations to both CLC teams for their efforts, conduct and teamwork on the day.
Mr N Busby, Assistant Director of Sport (Engagement)
