Three students from Monmouth Comprehensive School are celebrating sporting success.

On Saturday 16th June, Georgia Howe took part in the three-peaks challenge with a group from AlphaLogix, a business software company.

The aim of the challenge is to walk up and down the three highest peaks in Great Britain within 24 hours: Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Snowdon in Wales.

Georgia's dad drove the camper van that transported the walkers from one peak to another.

At 14 Georgia was by far the youngest in the group, and as part of the team she helped to raise over £1,000 via sponsorship from a variety of sources for Cystic Fibrosis.

Georgia completed the three-peaks challenge with seven minutes to spare, a truly great achievement.

Tom Reynolds took part in the Welsh Inter Schools Athletics Championships on Saturday 7th July in Brecon, where he represented the school as part of the South East Wales team.

He won three medals at the championships – silver in the 100m, silver in the 200m and bronze in the 4 x 100m relay.

He continues to be successful in his chosen sprints and currently has a personal best of 11.31 seconds in the 100m, placing him fifth in his age group in the UK.

His 200m personal best is 23.4 seconds, which places him currently in 10th place UK-wide.

Tom has also qualified for the British Outdoor Championships, which will be held in Bedford on 17th and 18th August.

Ryan Lee took part in the Inter Regional Championships at Cardiff on Saturday and had a second in the 100m and a very good first place in the 200m with a relaxed and controlled race.

This will give Ryan confidence going into the SIAB games this weekend at Ashford, where the top elite school age athletes from all over the UK will take part in a one-day meeting.

Ryan is under no illusion that he will have to be at the top of his game to compete with these quality athletes but he is more than up for the challenge.

Ryan will also be notified this week if he has been successful in selection for Wales in the Celtic cup, which will be held in Aberdeen next month.
