The girls placed really well considering the group sizes they competed in were large. Elwynn Spence (8JKI) was placed sixth out of 36 competitors in the year 7 and 8 novice category, which also saw Hollie Lapping (8SMA) finish ninth and Amber Spence (8JKI) finish joint 15th.

Two other students competed in the year 9-10 novice category with Maddison Lapping placed eighth out of 26 taking part and Isabel Cottrell was 22nd.

A special mention needs to go to Isabel for competing, as, after breaking her wrist, she didn’t get as much practice as the others, but she battled through and tried her best.

Honiton College teacher Miss Bowles said: “Although it was a long day I was proud to watch the girls perform, showcasing all their hard work and commitment to the sport. Thank you to the girls’ parents for attending and supporting them all and to Vanessa Jackson, one of our ex-students, who helped during the day. Without her volunteering we would not have been able to take all five students.”
