Bolton School girls represented the School at the
weekend at the Northern Semi Final of the English Schools'
Biathlon event held in Macclesfield.
The Junior Girls competed in a 500m running race and a 50m
swimming race. In the Year 6 girls' event Grace Haskins came in
33rd, Hannah Stephenson 37th and Louisa Brophy (of Year 7) finished
40th overall. This meant that their team was placed sixth
overall in the Year 6 Team competition, which unfortunately means
that they will not proceed to the National Finals but
congratulations are still in order for representing the school so
well and for reaching the semi-final of the competition.
Senior Girls competed in a 1000m running race and a 100m
swimming race, and in Year 9 of the girls' competition, Aimee Smith
finished 6th, Katie Devine 37th and Isobel Faulkner 41st. This was
enough to secure fourth place for the girls in the Year 9 Team
competition. Year 10 pupil, Lydia Walker, finished in an impressive
2nd position overall in her age group. Lydia and Aimee will qualify
automatically for the National final in March, and the other girls
will wait to hear if they will be joining them.
