SCHOOL NEWS: Truly champion effort – Year Seven girls are Holyrood’s finest
THE Year Seven girls at Holyrood Academy in Chard have been phenomenal sportswomen this year - probably the best year group Holyrood has ever had in terms of trophy and competition success in one season.
These girls are county hockey champions, county handball champions, county athletics champions and county rounders champions.
They have also been county runners-up for indoor cricket, outdoor cricket, netball and indoor athletics. Obviously to get through to the county finals they have had to become district champions first so they have done so well to even get there.
Mrs Preston, sports coach at Holyrood Academy, said: “This type of success is something worth celebrating as many of these girls were new to the sports in September - where might they be heading? We are expecting big things from these girls - watch this space!”
The all-conquering Chard sportswomen from Year Seven have been Holly Griffiths, Megan Turnbull, Millie Stoneman, Phoebe Grinter, Charlotte Lamb, Grace Farmer, Liffy Crouch, Matilda Clayton, Daisy Clayton, Laura Miller, Isla Souster, Ruby Hobbs, Hannah Hill and Matilda Wallbridge.
