Biathlon – 5th League Meeting

19 JANUARY 2019

Six Union biathletes travelled through to PE to represent the school in the 5th league meeting of the season. The Union team was delighted to welcome two newcomers to the team, namely, Rebecca Copeman in Grade 5, and Mia Botha in Grade 3. Rebecca, competing in her first biathlon event, delivered a confident performance and placed well in her age-group. Although Mia Botha is not new to the sport, she is new to Union and she did us extremely proud by producing a very comfortable first place in her age group. While both these young athletes did exceptionally well, it was however evident that the senior team-members had had a long and restful holiday and took a bit longer to enter into the competitive spirit of the event. We hope for a substantial improvement all round in the next outing.
