On Tuesday, 12 pupils travelled to Shrewsbury Sports Village as part of our basketball, hockey and cross country teams. Having already progressed through the Baschurch cluster and North Shropshire competitions, all had done brilliantly to reach this stage.
After narrowly losing their first game, our basketball team won their remaining 4 games convincingly and ended up winning the fiercely contested tournament and being crowned SHROPSHIRE CHAMPIONS! Well done to Theo, Mateo, Raluca, Alanna and Lois who were well deserving of their victory.
Fia was our only runner to qualify for the finals and achieved an amazing 3rd place. After the improvement in Fia’s running so far this year, I’m excited to see how she progresses in year 4.
Our hockey team had to deal with numerous changes as the basketball was taking place at the same time meaning the team had 3 new members. They finished in 5th place but showed great resilience throughout the morning against more experienced teams. Well done to William, Ajvir, Thomas, Lucy, Chloe and Erin.
This was the first time any of our teams have qualified for the Shropshire Games in at least 4 years so all pupils deserve huge credit for their sporting success so far this year.
Pictures to follow!
