THE Gillotts ski team will take an U16 girls’ team to the English Schools Ski Championships
THE Gillotts ski team will take an U16 girls’ team to the English Schools Ski Championships next month after winning their regional qualifier at Gloucester last the weekend.
The team is made up of triplets Lily, Danielle and Zara Hawkins alongside Emma Trust, who is skiing up an age category.
With three from four runs required from each of the two slalom runs Gillotts had a different faller in each race. However, they secured the required number of times for an impressive victory holding off Cheltenham Ladies College and Torquay Girls.
Zara Hawkins responded positively from her first run fall by securing the fastest run of the day on the second run.
After winning silver medal at last year’s nationals the team will be hoping to go one better when they compete on the weekend of October 10.
