Yesterday, 21st May 2017, 24 pupils from Yarrells travelled to Leweston to compete at the South West Schools Biathle against 42 schools.   Biathle is a run-swim-run competition and is quite a new sporting event for Yarrells.  The children have shown a real commitment to the sport by putting in extra practice during the Yarrells afterschool Triathlon club and travelling to competitions at the weekend; the results are proof of this.

Yarrells had some incredible results and showed real grit and determination throughout each category with:

Lottie Vavasour 1st (Year 3 girls)
Elizabeth Dawson 1st (Year 4 girls)
Jayden Coombes 2nd (Year 4 boys)
Ollie Crowe 4th (Year 4 boys)
Nancy Taylor 4th (Year 4 girls)
Max Phillips 4th (Year 5 boys)

There was more success in the team competitions:

Year 4 boys A team 1st
Year 3 girls A team 2nd
Year 4 boys B team 3rd
Year 5 boys A team 3rd

The next competition is the National Schools’ Biathle Championships in June where we are looking at taking 50 pupils to compete.


1st Lottie (Year 3 girls), 2nd Jayden (Year 4 boys) and 1st Elizabeth (Year 4 girls)


Winners – Year 4 Boys Ollie, Jayden and Noah
