Last weekend our St Mary’s Ski Team took part in the Southern Schools Skiing Championship, competing against schools from around the region. The girls Hannah Groves, Nicole Groves, Laura Harrison Smith and the boys Dan Hutchings and Daniel Groves from the Prep School represented the school with aplomb.

As a team, they secured a win in the category 2 (Years 7 8 and 9) with Prep School stepping up a level to help out the Senior School.

Dan Hutchings secured fastest male of the day, and it is worth mentioning that St Mary’s were the fastest team of the whole day, including against the seniors.

A special thanks needs to go to Tony Smith who has worked behind the scenes to organise all of the ski racing for St Mary’s over the last few years. ¬†Tony is now stepping down so that win was for you Tony, thank you.

If anyone is interested in getting into ski racing please contact Dan Hutchings.
