Many congratulations to Audrey and Dashka, who were both involved in outstanding sporting achievements this weekend.
After an extensive trial process, Audrey has been selected for the new Heart of Midlothian Football Club Girls' Academy as part of of their Under 13 squad. Audrey was at Hearts on Saturday for a very exciting Induction and signing day.
Meanwhile, Dashka was taking part in a very wet,windy and muddy race for The East Scotland team in the Inter District Cross Country event. This was held in Stirling and took place alongside National and International races, so Dashka had the opportunity to meet some Olympic athletes. Dashka came 4th in the East Scotland race and an unconfirmed 17th in Scotland for Under 13 girls.
It takes many hours of hard work and dedication to reach the level of sport that both these athletes are involved in,and they are, of course, an inspiration to all of the pupils playing sport at Fettes.
