Teen aces' national silver win
11:00am Thursday 24th October 2013 in Sport
TWO teenage girls from Evesham Sea Cadets triumphed at the national paddle sports competition in London.
Ordinary Cadets Zara Pratley and Grace Bradley claimed silver medals in the girls’ junior K2 sprint event, missing out on gold by just half-a-length. The pair qualified to compete in the capital by winning their district and area competitions.
Grace, aged 14, said: “We have been training on the River Avon since March so I’m proud to have achieved a national medal.
“Next year we are definitely aiming for gold.”
Evesham Sea Cadets meet on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7pm to 9.30pm at their headquarters in Shinehill Lane, South Littleton.
New recruits between the ages of 10 and 18 are welcome, while the unit is also looking for adults to train as instructors.
