IAPS National Success

 

IAPS Cricket Nationals

This was the first time we entered this competition, since only starting cricket this term it was an amazing achievement to be placed 2nd! 

IAPS National Swimming Finals

Eight girls recently competed in the IAPS National Swimming Finals at the London Aquatic Centre. The afternoon started with an amazing fly pass of jets including The Red Arrows heading for the Trooping of the Colour and Horse Guards Parade.

The U10 Medley Relay team made up of Savannah, Jessica, Millie and Ellen were the first to compete, and following a fantastic swim, the girls finished in 3rd place securing a bronze medal with a time of 1:13:39 (6 seconds faster than the qualifying time in January). The girls also took part in the Freestyle Relay but unfortunately didn't secure a medal, despite swimming 10 seconds faster than the last round.

Next, the U11 Medley team of Constance, Evie, Millie and Ella swam. They were up against very strong competition but swam brilliantly as a team. A big thank you to Millie who stood in at the last minute and supported the others for the whole afternoon.

Millie placed 13th in the U10 25m Butterfly, and Constance placed 8th in the final of the U11 25m Butterfly.

Ella had an amazing afternoon and made the finals of the U11 50m Backstroke finishing 2nd, securing a silver medal with a new personal best of 33.98. Jessica was unusually nervous about her U10 25m Backstroke as she had qualified for the event in 1st place. She had nothing to worry about and confidently won the IAPS National Final in a time of 16.4 seconds, narrowly missing the record of 16.14.

IAPS Triathlon Championships

Grace and Alice participated in the IAPS triathlon event at Dulwich Prep School.

They both had an excellent swim and their team mates cheered them on as they ran into transition right in front of all of the supporters. Grace did a little extra lap trying to locate her bike amongst the hundreds of bikes that were there, thankfully she found it and they were both on their way!

Grace smashed the cycle and was steaming around the course, followed not far behind by Alice who cycled the best she has ever done. Alice did superbly in the run, and despite suffering with a stitch from swallowing so much pool water, she came an excellent 20th place out of 54 girls. Graces run was amazing and she crossed the finish line one second ahead of her nearest rival.

Everyone had an agonising wait whilst the other competitors finished, but it was confirmed Grace was the IAPS National Triathlon Champion for the second year running.

This was topped off later in the day when her elder sister, Ellie (a former Prep School student) also won the event as the sisters strike again! An excellent day and well done to Alice, Grace and all the girls from the Senior School who represented Kent College.
