Congratulations to Holly (Samuel Ward Academy), Riya (King Edwards VI School) and Isobel (Samuel Ward Academy) who all collected medals at the Suffolk Schools Championships. Holly won the U16 girls for a 2nd time with Riya an excellent runner up. Isobel won the U13 girls and will join her sister in representing Suffolk at the National Schools Championships at the end of April.
Leo Saiu Bell (St Benedicts) was the lone Rougham boy, entering the U16 boys. He got the better of his National Cadet League team mate to secure second place in his qualification group. Into the quarter-final he took a good early lead against an established County player who then recovered to prevail 3-1.
A successful day overall, but definitely one for the girls.
U16 Girls - Riya Kumar and Holly McGerty
U13 Girls - Isobel McGerty (Samuel Ward Academy)
