Friday saw Yr8 play the 1st matches of the inter-house competitions. Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-Y-Ghent went head to head in Netball and Rugby to win vital house points.
The girls battled it out in 3 close games of Netball. Ingleborough fought hard and were rewarded for their efforts with wins in both matches. Whernside were hot on their tails and came in second after a victory over Penn-Y-Ghent. Coming in third Penn-Y-Ghent, who should be commended for the resilience shown by each of their players.
Over on the field the boys showed true Yorkshire grit and impressed Mr Hill with their Rugby skills. Penn-Y-Ghent were the dominant team winning all their games. However, it was Whernside Vs Ingleborough that turned out to be the match of the competition. Both teams equally matched slogged it out but Whernside took and early lead. Ingleborough though never let their head drop and played tremendously scoring two late trys to win the game.
Amazing effort by every student, bring on Yr7&9 later this week.
Well done to our Yr9 and Yr10 Netball girls for their performance at Monday’s fixture.
A nail bittingly close game for Yr9 saw them victorious with a 5-3 win against Wharfedale. Rachel H had an exceptional game and was rewarded with player of the match chosen by the other team.
For Yr10 it was Louie L who impressed the Wharfedale crowd and was given player of the match, truly well deserved.
Again a very well done to everyone who played, you did Nidderdale proud.
Excellent effort in tonight’s matches against Upper Wharfedale school. All girls played well with Lucy M & Sacha R who were nominated as player of the match by the opposite team. Congratulation to year 8 on their 4 – 0 win Miss Wilcock
This evening the Year 10’s played against Rossett School. An excellent team effort helped them to a 3-2 victory. Goals from Adam B (x2) and a last minute winner from Benjy W. Well done lads!
Girls from Year 9 and 10 travelled to Harrogate Rugby club on Wednesday to play against Rossett School. The girls demonstrated excellent skill development, and were a credit to the school!
