On Wednesday the 15th of January Chailey Heritage's Boccia team participated in the annual County Boccia Competition based at Angmering School, West Sussex. The team consisted of Keelie Sayers, Holly Walbrin, and Ellie Heath. With a strong Angmering A and B team present (who typically win the nationals) we knew we would be in for some tough competition. However, the team came together fantastically under the guidance and leadership of team captain Keelie, and after a thrilling, and tightly contested, victory over Ingfield Manor, Chailey Heritage School were placed Third in the County. The highest ever placing in the history of the school in a County competition!
It was brilliant to see the team come together and showcase all the hard work they have put in over the past few years, and demonstrate their teamwork skills, independence, choice-making and sportsmanship. I am very proud of my team, and look forward to next year, and hopefully clinching second place!
