Ice Skating News

Thank you to Mrs O’Mahoney for this update:

“Imogen O’Mahoney (Year 12) and Tilly Richardson (Year 10) competed this weekend in the final Synchro competition of the season with their team the Whizz Kids.

It was a very tight competition as they were up against their season rivals from Sheffield (who were skating in their home rink – always an advantage).

At the last competition, the Whizz Kids just beat Sheffield by 0.78 of a point so as you can imagine, Sheffield were determined to win this time.

Day one saw the Whizz Kids ahead by just over 1 point, Sheffield skated first on day 2 and scored very well, the Whizz Kids came on the ice and you could see how determined they were. After an amazing skate, all with huge smiles on their faces, they scored 10 points above Sheffield– a huge victory, and yet another PB score.

The Whizz Kids with the other 2 teams from Altrincham get one hour a week between them with their coach, so to be achieving these amazing results is a real credit to their determination and hard work

You can imagine how proud we all were when the girls were on the podium and the National Anthem was played, what an amazing achievement and experience for them all.”

Well done girls!
