The Grange Ski Team, consisting of skiers from both the junior and senior school, took part in the ISA National Indoor Ski Championships in Hemel Hempstead, and came away with a hefty selection of medals and prizes. Competition was fierce, with more than three hundred racers from across the country taking part.
The Senior Boys A Team (Alistair Begg, Cameron McGregor-Ogden, Tom Rascagneres, Ben Tranter) came first and are the 2016 ISA champions, and the Senior Girls B Team (Izzy Edwards, Lucy Edwards, Amy Glassbrook) were runners-up in second place in the females competition.
Individual medals were also awarded, with The Grange hogging the top spots. Tom Rascagneres was fastest overall, closely followed by Cameron McGregor-Ogden in second place overall. In the ISA age groups we achieved many additional top 5 places:
• Izzy Edwards 1st u16 Girl
