On Thursday the junior and intermediate girls' athletics teams competed in the first round of the National Schools Athletics Cup.
After a week of glorious sunshine the athletes found themselves competing in strong winds and heavy rain, which lasted all day. However, the girls showed their true "SHSG" grit and achieved some very pleasing performances. In conclusion in the junior girls competition SHSG finished in 1st place with 415 points and in second place was William De Ferrer's School with 268 points. In the intermediate girls competition the results were 1st SHSG scoring 425 points and Appleton were 2nd with 216 points. Both teams have now qualified for the regional final which is on Tuesday 16th June at Lee Valley Athletics Stadium.
The senior tennis team of Katie McGarrigle, Joanna Rimmington, Rebecca Dawson and Stephanie Bunting had a very closely contested match against New Hall School in the second round of the National Schools Senior Competition. Finishing evenly matched after the single and double had been played it went to a tie break and New Hall was the eventual winner by 10 points to 4. Well done to all the girls who played.
