It’s been fantastic to see so much usage of the astroturf over the last few weeks and how well students have adhered to ensuring that the space is getting looked after and being maximised. Long may that continue!
We have also had a series of fixtures recently. Our Year 11 netball team had a superb 17-11 win against Stags and all students were fantastic – some great passing and interceptions throughout. Jasmine D and Thea O were identified as players that excelled.
Great work by the U12, U14 and U16 girls futsal teams in a district tournament. The girls were superb! Stand out performers were Alice T, Sophie K, Poppy D and Mikalya C. Our u16 girls finished 3rd overall.
The year 11 boys football team had a fantastic 3-2 win in the county cup at home on our brand new astroturf.
Our Year 7 basketball team had a 23-22 win against Aldwickbury yesterday. They also have another fixture against Nicholas Breakspeare later today. The Year 8 rugby team completed their final game of the rugby season with a highly competitive game against Verulam, being edged out by one try. Some fantastic defence throughout though.
Finally, huge congratulations to the six students who competed at the Zonal trampoline competition in Solihull last Sunday. Matthew P, Josh P and Riley W were crowned Zonal Champions in the year 7-9 Elite category, qualifying for the National Finals in March in Telford and Matthew qualified in 5th place individually. Ollie T and Jude D competed fabulous routines to place 7th and 9th respectively in the year 9-10 Novice category, with Ollie only 0.1 away from qualifying individually for his first National Finals. To finish the day off, Will E competed in a tough category for the intermediate boys. Will completed great routines and placed 4th overall qualifying for the National Finals. Thank you to all the parents who supported their children on the day and to parents who volunteered as helpers for the competition.
Well done to all involved.
