The junior school tasted sporting success as both the under 11 netball and football teams got their hands on some silverware.
Rosie Lear, Libby Goodman, Darcy Breen, Anna Wilkinson, Amaya North, Jessica Jones, Annalisa Griffiths and Aimee Reynolds travelled to Rotherham on the penultimate Friday of term to take part in Saint Pius X Catholic High School’s netball tournament.
The girls had a cracking start, winning their first match 18-0 against the hosts and they carried their good form on throughout the group stages, winning all their games.
The knockout rounds were up next and in the quarter final the girls faced Buchan School who had flown in on the morning of the tournament from the Isle of Man! The school saw off the challenge of Buchan School to earn a match against The Grammar School at Leeds in the semi-final. The players continued their fine form, defeating the girls from Yorkshire to secure a place in the final.
In the decider they came up against Grange School. As you would expect it was a tough game but the girls’ battling qualities shone through as they outscored the opposition to secure a 9-3 victory and win the tournament.
There was extra reason for celebration as Anna Wilkinson was chosen as one of the three players of the tournament.
Fancy footwork from our under 11 football team saw them sweep aside all-comers at a 7-a-side competition at King’s School, Macclesfield.
In the six team tournament the boys won all five games and scored 15 goals in the process to take home the shield and medals.
The school edged a close encounter against Altrincham Preparatory School 2-1 before seeing off Bolton School and the hosts 3-1.
The game against Cheadle Hulme School was another tight match with a solitary goal making the difference as our boys won 1-0 before the action concluded with an impressive 6-0 victory over Terra Nova School.
