DAOS take part in EESKIA qualifier East of England Schools Skiing Race!

Many thanks to Mrs Davighi for the following report:

‘We entered a senior boy’s team this year in the ESSKIA race held on Sunday 15th September at The Gosling Ski Centre, Welwyn Garden City.  The students skied really well, it was a very hot day and the slope ran slower than usual.  The boys came a close 6th and might qualify for the National qualifier finals next month in Norwich.

Our fastest skiers on the day were Daniel Heymoz in Year 13 with a time of 11.43 seconds and Arthur Bucher coming second with a time of 11.73. Oscar Siddle’s personal best time on the day was 13.96 seconds & Elian Razavi’s personal best time on the day was 14.54 seconds. A huge congratulations to the boys as these are excellent fast times considering it was a very hot day, really well done!

Dame Alice Owens’ total time was 1:15.23 with a gap: + 10.61.

We were very grateful to parents and Mrs Wootton as well as Dr Mitchell who helped out on the day – without their help the competition couldn’t take place!’
