24 eager pupils from Yarrells competed at the National Schools’ Biathle Championships held at Leweston school on Sunday, with over 350 pupils racing.
This is the second season that Yarrells has put a team forward for a national level competition, and after a year’s worth of training and development, this year we arrived with confidence and momentum, having competed at the South West Schools’ Biathle last month as a warm up to this competition.
