Year 10 pupil Andrew Keat is the English Schools'
Biathlon Champion in his age group after an outstanding
performance at the final of the competition.
Andrew came first in the 1000m run and eleventh in the 100m swim
to secure first place, while Year 11 pupil Oliver Walker also gave
an impressive performance, finishing fourth in the run and fifth in
the swim to give him an overall position of third in his age group.
Thanks to their successes at the competition, Andrew and Oliver
have qualified automatically for the British Biathlon Championships
to be held in Birmingham on 8 May.
It seems that talent runs in the family as Oliver's sister Lydia
in Year 10 of the Girls' Division came 7th in her age
group, placing 14th in the run and 13th in the swim.
Also in the Girls' Division, Aimee Smith finished 9th in
the Year 9 age group taking 18th in the run and
11th in the swim. Back in the Boys' Division, Year 8
pupil Matthew Martin finished 16th in his age group and
the Year 7 team gained 5th position in theirs. The
Junior Boys' team also did well in the competition to take second
overall in their age group.
