Christ College pupils have had a very busy sporting weekend, on top of cricket & rounders fixtures we had pupils participating in Golf, Athletics & Tetrathlon.
Year 9 Pupil Kitt, was competing at the Windsor Horse show as part of the Wales & Borders team in the Junior Pony Club Tetrathlon. The Team were 2nd over all.
Kitt came 4th individually, he had a PB in his swim and run and a clear round jumping. The team were also fortunate enough to appear in the main ring after their competition on their horses in front of the Queen and Prince Philip. Well done Wales & Borders & Kitt.
