Hermione enjoying life on and off pitch
Hermione was part the school team which competed in the National Schools seven-a-side girls’ football competition in Surrey.
Hermione scored a hat-trick in one of the group matches, with her team being unbeaten in the six matches before the final.
Playing King’s School Taunton, her team won a close match in a penalty shoot-out.
This was a sweet success, since the same team had beaten Hermione’s school in the national 11-a-side competition last year.
On Saturday Hermione ran for South Derbyshire at the Derbyshire Cross Country Schools Championships at Moorways Stadium, Derby.
She finished fourth over a short, flat and very fast 3.6km course, and has qualified for the English Schools’ Championships in March.
Earlier in the month, she competed at the Lincolnshire County-Cross Championships at Biscarthorpe, near Louth.
She came fourth in the junior women’s race over a hilly and wooded 6.5km course.
This has qualified her to run for Lincolnshire at the Inter-Counties Championships in March, to be held near Loughborough.
Hermione runs for Nene Valley Harriers and is coached by Boston’s Dave Clay at the Princess Royal Sports Arena.
