Sports Roundup: National competitions news
King’s High’s sportswomen have been busy competing on the national stage again.
After winning the William Powell Schools competition, the Claypigeon teams defended their Four Times Crown (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) at the National Schools Championships. They came second and third (just 5 targets behind the winners). All performed really well on a very challenging course in some very changeable weather. The teams are focussing now on regaining ‘their’ Championship next season! Congratulations, Chloe, Cassie, Nina, Freja, Sophie, Elizabeth and Jecca.
