Congratulations to Ioan Higgins, Year 11, Angharad Morley, Year 10 and Catrin Morley, Year 7 who competed in the Welsh National Dry Slope Ski Championships at Pontypool on Saturday 8th September and in the Welsh Open Championships on Sunday 9th September. In a large field, with skiers coming from all over Britain and Ireland, Ioan Higgins won Bronze for the fastest male Welsh skier Under 16 and Catrin Morley won Silver for fastest female skier Under 14.
Gwynllyw are currently looking for one female and two male skiers to complete the teams for the Welsh Schools Championships on 14th October. Please contact Julia Hawkins on email@example.com if you are interested. You do not have to be an expert skier – if you can snowplough turn on a dry slope, you can be in the team.
