Golfers Gain Great Ground!
Year 10 pupil, James Andrews finished second in the Lancashire U15 Boys Championship out a field of over 80 golfers at Blackburn Golf Club recently.
James carded a superb round of 5 over par; his round of 76 gross was only bettered by one shot. QEGS have not had a top 3 finisher in this prestigious event since 1999! This was achieved after a horrible double bogey on the first hole; James was able to recover his composure and play some excellent golf throughout the rest of the round.
Ahmad Musa also played fantastic golf to record a gross score of 92, which resulted in a nett score of 67. This enabled him to finish 4th out of the 80 golfers from around the county in the handicap event - a truly remarkable effort for a year 8 pupil playing for the school in his first ever golf event.
Max Powter (Year 9) also played well on the day, scoring a 3 over par nett score of 74.
Overall, it was an excellent day for our golfers who represented the school brilliantly, both on and off the course.
Well done to these three boys, it was a pleasure to watch you play!
