Here is some of our recent sporting news to catch up on:
Cricket Mini Youth Games
Just before half term our cricket team travelled what seemed miles to get to High Halstow Cricket Club to take part in the Mini Youth Games Cricket Tournament. On a lovely day for cricket we played 6 matches which included two wins. Two of the losses were incredibly close, one by one run and one by 5. We finished overall in 35th place out of 51 schools and had we scored just a few more runs in those close games we would have come around 15th. That's how close the whole tournament was. Well done to all the players throughout the day and we are delighted to see how many have gone on to play for local clubs.
Football Mini Youth Games
Our footballers were at Anchorians Rec for their Mini Youth Games on another glorious day. Eight games were scheduled in a tournament of 54 schools and by winning four, drawing two and only losing two to narrow margins we finished 18th. The team were there for eachother all day showing great sportsmanship and playing some fantastic football. We scored 11 goals through the day and conceded much fewer.
Table Tennis Night of Champions
Having finished in the top eight (5th) in the mini youth games table tennis event we were invited to take part in the Night of Champions event which is a knockout tournament. Our first match was against St Andrews who we beat comfortably and this brought us up against Pilgrim School who we met at the first tournament and whose girls have since gone on to win the national championships. Undaunted we set off into the game, two of our girls actually took a leg from the Pilgrim girls, taking them to a third leg, which shows how much they have improved because at MYG they only got a few points from them. We lsot this match and then had a tight game against Warren Wood for the 3rd/4th place spot. Again it was incredibly close, Dan, for example fought really well but lost both legs 11-10. Special mention goes to Kyle who has played number 1 for the boys for 3 years now and has hardly lost a leg. Well done and good luck.
