On Saturday the 27th April, 15 of our netball girls got the chance to watch a professional netball match, Manchesterl Thunder v Team Bath!
As an added bonus several of the England netball squad were playing on both teams, meaning the girls got the opportunity to speak to them, get their autographs and have pictures with them.
I was so impressed with the way the girls represented school and I was proud to listen to the enthusiasm they showed while discussing the game both during and after.
Thank you to all the girls and parents.
Year 8’s travelled to Ilkley yesterday to take part in West Yorkshire’s ‘Day of Rugby’.
A fantastic display by all 13 lads in their 3 games playing against strong teams, the team walked away with 1 win out of 3 games.
Tries from Liam W, Jacob F, Jacob H and Roman S were the highlights of the day with exceptional teamwork on display to get the ball over the line.
The team have made great improvements this year and are already catching up to more experienced teams in the area!
Yesterday, we took 8 girls from Year 7 & 8 to Harrogate Rugby Club. Out of 5 games, they won 3, drew 1 and lost 1! All girls were awesome, demonstrating some fantastic skill and teamwork!
If any students are interested in playing Rugby outside of school, Harrogate U13s girls team train Tuesday evenings 6-7pm at the Army Foundation College, and are welcoming new players.
