Congratulations to girls who came in the top three in the LC1 race, Tess (1st - 9:15), Leila (2nd - 9:40) and Sophie (3rd - 9:46); to our top three in LC2, Tanya (1st - 9:21), Martha (2nd - 9:44) and Beth (3rd - 10:07); and our top three in the LC3 Sienna (1st - 11:42), Antonia (2nd - 11:53) and Abbi (3rd - 11:58).
Our LC3 and UC4 team consisting of Inge, Amelia, Jiya and Emma put up a good fight against team from Blundell’s. All singles matches were close but the opposition was just too consistent and powerful.
In the next stage, the girls continued to play well, winning matches to go into a playoff at 3-3. A tie-break to 10 was played, with Amelia and Jiya playing together. It was hard-fought, but they lost 10-6.
Overall, the LC3 and UC4 team came 4th in the South West Region. As they are a young team, they can play in the same competition again next year.
Our LC1 and LC2 girls lost to a very strong team from Blundell’s in their first match. Ife and Jemima both had close singles matches, with most games going to deuce. The doubles were also close; Ife and Obasemilore worked well as a team and Eniami and Abbi took control at the net.
In the next round, the girls stormed ahead winning all four singles. Eniami played some lovely baseline rallies and Abbi controlled her match with many winners. The doubles again showed how much the girls have improved as they only dropped one game in the set.
Overall, the LC1 and LC2 team were winners of the consolation draw. Well done to all that played.
Congratulations to Eloise who represented Hong Kong at national level this summer, playing in the Prague Open. If she is successful in trials this autumn, Eloise is hoping to represent Hong Kong at the U19 World Cup in Canada in August 2019.
At the South West Secondary Schools Team Relay our Inter team of Anastasia, Azra, Sugar and Jessie gave of their all in both events. The freestyle race saw the quartet give a determined performance to win their heat, with excellent turns and underwater phases. In the medley they raced well again, producing a number of best individual times along the way. The team finished 4th in their heat.
CLC SKI RACING
The CLC ski race training has never been so popular, with 37 pupils at the first taster and training session.
The competitive season started quickly this term and four teams took part in the ESSKIA Regional Race on 16th September at Gloucester Dry Slope. We had some mixed results, but the U14A team raced extremely well finishing first and the U16A team placed third in a very competitive field.

A number of girls in the ski team will be travelling to SAAS FEE in October half term to take part in their training camp. If you are interested in joining the CLC Ski Team or a Kandahar Camp, please get in touch with Mrs Guest.
