St. Dominic's are Staffordshire School Games Tri Golf Bronze Medallists - twenty schools (two hundred children) from across Staffordshire were competing at the tri golf finals at the end of June.
Qualifying for the Staffordshire Schools Games Finals held at Keele University means that you have in tri golf, either come first or second in your District Competition and that you now face the best schools in Staffordshire on this day.
It is a memorable day for the children with an opening ceremony, a mass warm-up led from the stage, motivational speeches from sporting celebrities Kristian Thomas(GB Olympic & European Gymnast) and Jenna Dowling (Ex World Champion Inline Skater) this year, and then off to compete in your particular sport. Afterwards, there are fun activities such as zorbing to experience, meeting the celebrities for photos and autographs, before each sport gathers back at the stage for their particular results and podium presentation.
One of our sporty dad's who came along to support, expressed his surprise and new found respect for tri golf as he had not realised the difficulty of the challenges and the skill levels required for success. Fitness, concentration and team work are also other important aspects of tri golf.
Chipping and putting their way to an excellent third place in Staffordshire, through eight different skill challenges were Molly, Joel, Aoife, William, Joseph, Holly, Sissy, Joe, Joe and Ruby.
A super day to remember made extra special by returning with medals and a place on the podium.
