Summer Term Sporting Success
It’s been another great term for sport at Hanford. Winning the North Dorset U12 and U13 tennis tournaments at Leweston, the U12 rounders team are North Dorset Champions and the U12 athletics team are also North Dorset Champions this summer.
Six of the girls went to the county athletics competition at King’s Park Bournemouth where nearly all of them achieved a personal best performance. Ella R finished second in the high jump, jumping 1.3m and Georgia Mc finished 3rd in both the shot and the javelin events. While Clemmie CE and Ophelia J ran in the 1,500m and 800m respectively. Clemmie finished 2nd and Ophelia 3rd. Polly W sprinted well in her 200m heat enabling her to qualify for the final where she finished a commendable 4th. Clara took part in the long jump and was placed 3rd. Eliza and Clemmie hurdled superbly well in the final placing 2nd and 3rd.
Cricket at Hanford goes from strength to strength with more matches scheduled this summer and more girls taking part in the game. One of our Hanford girls, Georgia, has been training at Salisbury Club and is part of the Wiltshire Development Squad. We wish her every success this summer.
