Medal Haul for Biathletes!

Congratulations to our Biathlon Team, who competed at the Modern Pentathlon Association of Great Britain Schools’ Biathlon Competition. From our team of eleven girls, eight returned with medals, and two earned automatic qualification to the Nationals.

Accompanying the girls to the event at the weekend was PE Teacher Miss Fautley. "All of the girls competed with phenomenal determination and professionalism," she reported. "They were true assets to the School. For some of the girls this was their first ever Biathlon, and for a small school we had one of the largest teams. 

"I would like to give a special commendation to Hannah in Year 7. It was her first ever competition outside of school and her determination was incredible. She performed the fastest run time in her age group, and she swam very competitively. Hannah has gained automatic qualification to the Nationals - she's definitely one to watch for the future!

"I would also like to give a special commendation to Natasha in Year 8. Natasha's age group were particularly strong, and so to achieve a silver medal against this standard is a huge achievement. I'm thrilled to announce that Natasha has also gained automatic qualification to the Nationals!" 

Qualification news will be announced early next year, and we are hopeful that there will be more Cobham Hall girls joining Hannah and Natasha. The results for our girls was as follows:

U12 Girls

Hannah - 2nd 

Poppy - 6th 

U14 Girls

Natasha - 2nd 

Felicity - 7th
