On a bright and sunny evening in October over 180 boys and girls arrived at Saint Martin’s for the very first Solihull Primary Schools’ Biathlon. Eight girls’ teams and 7 boys’ teams took part.
A 25 metre swim was first and some of our team excelled in this event. Four of our team, namely Georgia Jones, Millie Gallagher, Amelia Bogira and Sophie Dodds recorded the fastest times of the night beating all of the boys.
In the 400 metres run our success continued; Katy Scott, Millie Gallagher and Georgia Jones were the fastest girls with Katy beating all of the boys’ times.
These results along with the rest of the team gave us 1st place in the event and we will now represent Solihull at an inter-regional competition in March.
The other team members were: Sophie Bartley, Isabella Willman, Isabella Poppy, Milan Jones, Charlotte Watson, Poppy Bamford, Joanna Minshull and Sharon Kaur.
As well as being team winners we clinched the top 3 individual places with Katy Scott coming 3rd, Millie Gallagher 2nd and Georgia Jones is the Schools’ Biathlon Champion!
What a superb result – well done to all of the team.
