THE Gillotts Girls’ U16 ski team secured silver medal success at their first English schools nationals finals at Norwich last weekend.
The result means that the Henley team will now go on to represent GB in the home nations finals to be held in Edinburgh on November 23.
Ipswich High School beat them narrowly into the gold medal position in a competitive age category with five teams from schools all over England entering the final race.
The Gillotts girls proved their quality in depth and determination by all four racers improving on their first run times.
The previous week Gillotts took their largest team to date (12 skiers) to Hemel Hempstead snow centre for the BISS Indoor Schools Ski Championships.
