Sports Successes Continue for Beaconsfield High School
Students and staff at Beaconsfield High School continue to dominate in their sports of choice, with remarkable achievements in the pool and on the netball and indoor hockey courts last weekend.
The school’s Under 19 Netball team competed at the National Schools Regional Rounds on Saturday 28th January, beating stiff competition to qualify for the final, to be played on Saturday 18th March. The school’s Under 14 team also successfully made it to the Regional Rounds although were unfortunately knocked out.
In the pool, Year 9 student Rachel Cornford has walked away from the Berks and South Bucks County Championships with 11 podium positions over two meets, winning two gold, two silver and 11 bronze medals. Rachel, 13, competes in the Junior category for Wycombe District Swimming Club, swimming against girls who are aged up to 15 years old.
Rachel won golds in the 100m Individual Medley and the 100m Freestyle, for which she set a Junior Championship record for the county and received an impressive trophy. Rachel’s fantastic times in the competition mean that she has also qualified for the South East Regional Championships later in the year.
Mrs Collin, Learning Support Assistant at the school, also recently represented the Wycombe District Swimming Club, winning six gold medals and one bronze in the South East Regional Masters Championships in Crawley, held earlier in the month. Mrs Collin competed in the 55-59 age group for the first time, and also achieved a Championship meet record in the 50m Butterfly.
Finally, Head of Year 11 Miss McGonigle played as team captain with her team, Slough, in the National Premier League Indoor Hockey Super 6s Championship at Wembley, winning the tournament to qualify for a place in Europe!
Well done to all of you, we are very proud!
