At EHS, sport is an integral part of school life and, as such, each girl has the opportunity to participate at every stage of her physical development. Amongst our pupils, we are lucky enough to have some exceptionally talented young women who are playing at the top of their sport and we are delighted to bring you news of their progress over recent months.
At the start of term, Asmita Chaudhari, Year 12, competed in the U19 European Junior Championships in Badminton (pictured). Asmita competed in both the team and individual events. In the team event, the team won their group beating Portugal, Spain and Hungary before playing Germany in the quarter finals where they narrowly missed out on reaching the semi-finals. In the individual event, Asmita and her mixed doubles partner had an outstanding result beating the 3rd seed Danish pair. In the last 16 of the tournament, Asmita and her partner narrowly lost to the French pair who were seeded number 1 and who went on to win overall. Fantastic achievements; well done, Asmita!
At the weekend, Amy Campbell competed in the British Gymnastics Tumbling Championships that took place in Birmingham. Amy, who is a pupil in Year 11, competed brilliantly, successfully qualifying for the final on the Sunday. Amy finished in a fantastic 5th place overall which we hope will qualify her for the World Championships in Russia! Well done, Amy!
