Fantastic results for BHGS in the Hertfordshire County Athletics League
BHGS pupils earned some fantastic results in the Hertfordshire County Athletics League over the last month. On Tuesday 25th May, the Junior girls finished in 3rd place and the Seniors placed 1st beating Dame Alice Owens, Queenswood and Presdales. Well done to all pupils!
In the more recent competition on Wednesday 9th June, our Junior team came joint 2nd with DAO behind St Albans Girls High and our Senior team maintained their excellent, unbeaten run again by finishing in 1st place beating a strong field including St Albans Girls High and Dame Alice Owens. A fantastic season so far and just one more round of the County Athletics Competition to go on Tuesday 15th June at Ridlins Athletics track in Stevenage – Good luck to both teams.
Based on their excellent results in the County League competition, 4 pupils were selected to attend the Hertfordshire County Champs competition which took place on Saturday 12th June at Jarman Park in Hemel. Ena O came 2nd in the U17 High Jump with a best jump of 1.56cm. Her most recent PB was 1m60 and the winning girl (in the year above) got 1m61 so Ena did very well to get so close! Daniella S just missed out on 3rd place in the U17 1500m but broke her PB by 5 seconds – congratulations on the new PB! Amelie H ran a strong 100m heat and qualified for the final before finishing in 7th place – a great effort. Natu K came 2nd in her 100m heat and just missed out in qualifying for the final as the 1st heat was incredibly quick which meant that all the fastest losers came from that race.
We are very proud of all of our participants in particular Ena, Daniella and Amelie who were competing mostly against Year 11s (in the year above).
Thank you to all PE staff for giving up their time with practice and competitions to allow the girls the opportunity to take part this year. Roll on the District Athletics competition on the 25th of June!
