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.
