Welcome to the third edition of the LGGS Sports Newsletter. This academic year has been jam packed with sporting highlights and it is an absolute pleasure to reflect on the achievements, big and small, that have been accomplished throughout our 2016-2017 journey. Our girls have shown strength in victory and defeat, found friendship, joy and laughter in a huge array of different sporting opportunities and have created fantastic memories of school sport to take into the future. Our LGGS world may only be small on that hill, but our girls have represented their Form, House and School with ambition, pride and spirit. Wider world: listen up, because our LGGS girls may be small, but they are mighty and we come together to roar: ‘LGGS Girls Can’. This term, British weather has been as erratic as Andy Murray’s tennis season, but spirits in lessons haven’t been dampened. All girls in Key Stage 3 have been working tirelessly to achieve athletics records and battled hard against gale force winds on the tennis
courts. More grass has been taken into the changing rooms than remains on the field itself and we have lost count of how many rounders balls we have misplaced in the hedge - the girls are getting too good at slogging that ball! The Midsummer Supper Run saw a whopping 270 entries and Phoebe Hayashi, Year 9, flew past the finish line in a blink of an eye as fastest LGGS female. Sports Day and Sports Presentation have been a fantastic finish to a superb LGGS sporting year. Sport at LGGS is constantly growing and now seems the perfect opportunity to summarise our sporting highlights: Over the past year there have been 20 different sports regularly on offer as an extra-curricular club. There have been over 110 school fixtures with the largest number of girls competing at one fixture being the Year 7 Netball v Ripley, with over 70 girls representing the school. Over 600 girls in years 7 to 11 have represented their House in one or more of the 10 different Inter-house competitions.
It is the first time we have run a high profile Inter-house dance competition. This was a huge success with over 24 group acts entering at all age ranges. The spin off from this was a Dance Showcase evening which included dance styles from all over the world. Another first - over 100 Year 7 girls have represented a sports team during the year. All 105 Year 10 Sports Leaders passed their qualification with flying colours. LGGS have dominated sport in the district, claiming the district champions title in the following competitions: Year 7 Netball, Year 8 A Netball, Year 8 B Netball, U16 Cricket, U13 Touch Rugby, U13 Football, Year 8 Swimming, Year 9 Swimming, Year 10 Swimming, Year 9 Rounders, Year 10 Rounders and KS3 Skiing. To all girls; thank you for inspiring us. To our LGGS parents; thank you for supporting your girls in their sporting journey. Until next time…

Horse Logging 19-20.05.2017 I travelled to Stroud in Gloucestershire with my two Dales horses to compete in the Horse Logging British Championships. Here I entered the Fell and Extract, and the Obstacle course, these consisted of using the horses to pull out timber effectively whilst overcoming added challenges. There were many different styles of logging, and it was great to see such a diverse range of horses, from Shires horses to Fell Ponies. I was nervous competing with the adults as they have been working their horses for years and years, but I was then awarded British Reserve Champion (2nd) with my dad becoming British Champion, and I was over the moon. Saskia Read, Year 12.

Swimming 10.06.17 Rachel Mockete, Year 8, completed the half mile Great North Swim in Lake Windermere to raise money for the Charity Sentebale. The Charity helps Children in Lesotho, Southern Africa, who are affected by HIV and AIDS. The charity was set up several years ago by Prince Seeiso of Lesotho and Prince Harry. My wave was the first of the day at 9.30am, when it was already pouring down with rain! The water temperature was 15.5 degrees, but it could have been so much colder. Despite
the awful weather conditions the atmosphere was really good, with all swimming abilities taking part. The swim was really tiring but fun and I will definitely do it again. U=I came 56th in my wave and my time was 17 minutes 32 seconds. All together I raised over £400, therefore, thank you to everyone who sponsored me! 25.06.17 Emily Wilson, Year 8, was selected to swim in the 200m butterfly for the North Lancashire team. The North Lancs competed against Cumbria, North Midlands, Manchester & District, and Liverpool & District. Emily was the only swimmer from Lancaster Swimming Club to be selected.

Table Tennis 23.06.17 Megan and Alice Dillon Megan and I travelled from Liverpool airport with some of our England team to arrive in Jersey
at about 3pm where we met the other half of our England team that flew from Gatwick. We checked into the hotel and then straight to the venue where my first round took place at 7:45pm. Me and my partner Federica , from London, were England B and we first had to play England A, to whom we lost 5-0 but the score doesn't really represent how close the games were. We then had to play Ireland A where we narrowly lost 3-2 which in the end, was the difference between a Silver or Bronze medal. We finished playing about 10pm then went back to the hotel for showers and we were all tired from the day of travelling and tough matches. Up at 6:40on Saturday, and first round of matches at 9am. Federica and I beat Guernsey 5-0, beat Wales 5-0 and finally beat Scotland 4-1, which meant we had secured a Bronze medal in the under 16 Girls’ Team event. We finished playing at about 5pm so went back to the hotel to get freshened up and then came back to the venue for about 7pm to watch some of the close Boys Semifinals and Finals. We cheered
Outside LGGS played so well, I met so many wonderful new friends that I have never had the chance to speak to before and it will be an experience I will never forget. Alice Dillon, Year 10.

Yoga Rosie Stephenson: Didn't give up on doing yoga for 2 weeks in a row team England on and matches finished at about 10.30pm. One highlight of my trip was eating KFC at 11:45pm in the lobby of my hotel with about 30 people from all corners of England and just having a good time! We went to bed about 12:30am and then rose at 6:40 am the following day for a day of individuals which started at 10:45am. I beat a Welsh girl 3-1 and an Irish girl 3-0, in my group, which meant I played Jennie Yang from Scotland who I beat 3-0. I was now facing my team mate, Bhavika Mistry, from England and I unfortunately lost 3-0 but it meant I had come away from my first Senior Schools International with a Bronze medal in the singles. I was so happy! We left the venue at about 4 pm and flew from Jersey back to Liverpool at about 6pm. I would have to say this was the favourite weekend of table tennis that I have ever competed in and not only was it amazing to have
Tetrathlon 13-14.05.17 Royal Windsor Tetrathlon Sasha Oldham, Year 9, competed in a team of 3 which represented the North of England at the Royal Windsor Tetrathlon which consists of swimming, running and shooting on the Saturday and Show Jumping on Sunday.
Temi Mustapha … this term’s Sports Profile Representing Lancashire in the U15 & U17 Inter-counties Track and Field event
This season I have participated in a lot of athletics in and out of school. The events I like the most are the 100m and hammer throw. The main competitions I have been selected for this season were the inter-counties, in which I came third with a time of 12.95. Soon I will be participating in the athletics youth games. As well as the competitions I do outside of school, I also enjoy school athletics competitions. The school competitions are a more friendly competition which makes it more fun. This season I initially had a PB of 13.4. I later achieved a PB of 13.1 at the Blackpool Winter Warmup. A couple of weeks after, I went to the Youth Development League (YDL) where I achieved a new PB of 12.7. Athletics is my favourite hobby and I am very passionate about it. In the future, I aspire to be a professional athlete one day Temi Mustapha was selected to represent Lancashire in the U15 & U17 Inter-counties Track and Field events. Lancashire was 2nd overall out of 8 counties.
Temi was put in the B string of the U15G 100m event and she came 3rd with a time of 12.95. However, the B race was faster than the A race as the winner of the A race had a time of 12.98. So according to Margaret Crompton, it's the results of the B race that would be used for the points for the team. She was also the anchor leg in the U15G 4 x 100 relay team coming 3rd out of the 8 counties. Temi has competed (and still would continue to do so) in several events representing Lancaster & Morecambe AC at indoor sports hall events earlier on in the year becoming the U15G athlete of the match in the first event. She was then selected to represent Lancashire in the regional indoor sports hall finals. Temi also competes for the club in the ongoing Youth Development League in the 100m, Hammer, Discuss and 4 X 100m events the last match of the league
going to take place on the 15th of July. She has also competed for the club in the Mid-Lancs league in 100m, Hammer Discuss and shot events getting the club record for U15G in the shot with a distance of 8.73 meters gaining Grade 4 standard under the Amateur Athletic Association. Her favourite event though is the 100m and she competes in this discipline at all her events. She won at the Lancashire Schools in this event with a time of 13 secs unfortunately not meeting the 12.8 secs required for English School qualification. However, her personal best this season in the very first Youth Development League event was a time of 12.7 secs gaining Grade 1 standard under the Amateur Athletic Association. This has given her a ranking of 34th in the country but she is determined to beat her PB by the end of the season and thus further improving her ranking.
‘Temi’s favourite event is the 1oom and she competes in this discipline at all events .’
