An Eventful Sports Day at TGS

Tonbridge Grammar School celebrated a range of successes of its annual sports day on Wednesday 26th June 2013. Carey was the overall winner with some outstanding performances: Rebecca O’Hara broke her own record for the Year 9 200 metres, Jennifer Stevens broke the Year 10 Shot putt, and the Year 9 relay team matched the school record. 

Other notable achievements included Caitlin Kickham (Year 10 ) who managed 1.54 metres in the High Jump and Jenny Stevens for a throw of 36.21 metres in the Discus (just short of her school record – 39.90 metres).

Although Carey won, it has to be said that Arnold took defeat with good grace and showed true sportsmanship on the day.

TGS is very proud of the sporting accomplishments of it students. In particular Megan Lewis (Year 12) who has been selected to play Basketball for England in the under-21 squad for the European Championships, Ellen Willumsen  (Year 10) who will be representing GB in the under-20 World Championship Aquathon, Jade Coatsworth (Year 8) who has recently represented GB in the World Biathlon Championships – achieving 5th place and Jenny Stevens who has been selected to represent Kent in the Shot-Put at the English School Athletic Championship.
