IsobelBlakeHurworthOn Saturday 30 June, Isobel Blake Hurworth of Caldecotte competed in the WJ15 single sculls at the Peterborough Junior Rowing Championships.

She braved 30 degree plus conditions and strong headwinds over the 1000m course throughout her heat, semi-final and final. Having beaten off several of the country’s best WJ15 contenders, Isobel contested a very competitive race in the final only to be pipped at the post by one second by Poppy Shipley, a GB Rowing Start athlete!

Isobel trains at Action4Youth Rowing Club, a very small club based on Caldecotte Lake North, which is operated by Action4Youth, a Buckinghamshire based charity. She currently competes in Bedford Rowing Club colours, where she is also a member and predominantly trains with her doubles partner, Ellie Cooke. At the beginning of the month, Isobel and Ellie competed in the WJ15 double sculls at Peterborough to come a very creditable second after staving off fierce competition in the heats.

John Smith, Isobel's Coach and Head Coach at Action4Youth Rowing Club stated: 

“Everyone at Action, especially myself, is hugely proud of Isobel’s first medal in a single scull, particularly against such tough competition. She works extremely hard in training, setting the example for all the junior rowers at A4Y as well being a very talented rower. With more training and further development, she has the potential to represent GB in the future. Since I took over as Isobel's coach in mid-April, she has made some significant changes, not just to her training plan, but also in her attitude towards how she competes, focusing more on the enjoyment, this has allowed her to perform to such a high standard recently."

Screen Shot 2018 06 25 at 00.56.42On Sunday 1 April, ninety-three students and twelve staff began their journey to Platja D’Aro for the Walton High Spain Sports Tour. With four football teams and three netball teams taking part, this week was sure to be hectic but fun.

On Tuesday, we went to Barcelona for the day.  After a quick breakfast, we were all on the coach heading to the Nou Camp Stadium, home of FC Barcelona.  The group then visited the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in central Barcelona, renowned worldwide for its detailed architecture, before moving on to Las Ramblas. Here, students roamed through the busy streets full of shops and local eateries and some sampled the local cuisine. In the evening, we headed off to the bowling alley and arcades - it’s fair to say that we will not be going on a bowling tour in the near future as scores were on the low side!
