First weekend of sporting success for Spring Term
On Saturday, the netball squads started their season with some positive and promising performances. The U12 A & B teams travelled to Taunton Prep School for their annual invitational tournament. The B team played in a round robin format against five other schools and finished in a creditable 2nd place behind the overall winners – Millfield School. The A team also followed the round robin structure against six other schools in an extremely close tournament and were unlucky not to win some of their matches – they certainly have lots of potential.
The older age groups had a block fixture against Blundell’s School. The Senior Squad hosted four teams in the afternoon, with the 1sts losing a very close and physical game by just 2 goals. The 2nds also took a defeat against slick opposition but the team remained positive throughout. The 3rds won 22-16 and the 4ths required discipline and mental resilience in the final quarter to hold on to their 1 goal lead to win 20-19.
The U15s, 14s and 13s travelled to Blundell’s with 6 teams and whilst the U13Bs took a loss, the other five teams won their matches with good margins – particularly the U13As who won 20-1. This was, overall, a promising start to the season.
U15A Won 24-13
U15B Won 13-6
U14A Won 19-13
U14B Won 21-14
U13A Won 20-1
U13B Lost 7-17
The basketball teams played against Queen Elizabeth’s College, Crediton on Saturday. The U18B team played very well and won their game 52-16. The U18A team, without some senior players due to injury, fought a tough battle against a strong Crediton team, eventually losing 58-39. Both teams will look forward to a re-match in three weeks time.
In boys hockey, we had a number of great matches last weekend.
The 1st XI beat Truro School 3-1 and lost narrowly to Mount Kelly 0-1.
The U15A played three matches on Saturday, where they beat Truro School 5-1 and Mount Kelly 3-0, with a draw 1-1 with Wellington School.
The U12A team had a great day on Saturday, with three resounding wins against Truro (6-1), Mount Kelly (2-1) and Wellington School (4-2).
Congratulations to all our sportspeople.
