Sport RoundUp – Monday 18 May

Monday 18th May 2015

Please find below for a sport roundup for this morning’s assembly:

On Tuesday 12 May, our athletics team competed against eight other schools in the first round of the English Schools’ Track & Field Cup, a competition based purely on points scored by pupils competing in two events each. The Intermediate Girls finished in fourth place, one place higher than last year, with impressive individual victories by Georgina Evans in the 300 metres, Ella Harris in the shot and Bella Bowater in the javelin. Bella also ran well in the 300 metres and was our athlete of the match, accumulating a total of 39 points. Luck was not with our Junior team this year, which finished in seventh place. Already missing one of their top athletes due to illness, they lost vital points when Ellie Toms fell heavily at the last hurdle whilst battling hard for second place. She courageously picked herself up in order to finish, receiving much praise from teammates, and went on to score 13 points in the high jump later in the afternoon. The junior athlete of the match was Sophia Ekundayo who competed in the 100 metres and discus, scoring a total of 31 points. We await the official results and these will be displayed on the website in due course.

On Wednesday 13 May, our tennis players enjoyed some convincing victories against The Abbey School. The U15A won 10-2 with Georgina Evans named player of the match and the U15C won 8-4 with the player of the match going to Sophie Hillas.  The U13A team completely dominated, winning 12-0 with Lucy Evans playing some beautiful tennis and the U13B team kept their focus in a really tight competition, winning 7-6, with Claudia Watts named the player of the match. A small team of athletes also took part in the first Reading Schools’ Athletics Selection Competition for the County Championships. A special mention goes to Maisie Pennant who was an impressive winner in the 300 metres and Emmeline Bolton who, despite being the only junior in the 1500 meters race, smashed her personal best time and broke the 6 minute barrier, recording 5 minutes, 59.9 seconds.

On Thursday 14 May, pupils, staff and parents enjoyed watching a highly competitive Gymnastics, Dance and Trampolining Inter-House Competition. Wilkins won the trampolining section, Webbe the gymnastics section and in the dance section, Webbe won the solo and Ffyler, the group competition. In the overall competition Ffyler came in 5th place with 117 points, Wisdome came in 4th place with 184 points, Wilkins reached 3rd place with 186 points, Maddock came in 2nd place with 195 points and Webbe were the overall winners in 1st place with 210 points. Congratulations to everyone who took part in this fabulous event.

On Saturday 16 May, the Inter-House Rounders added to the QASPA Open House and Spring Fayre atmosphere, with some excellent leadership evident by the U5 and L5 pupils. The standard of play was very good, including some spectacular catches by Bella Bowater and Emily Oram. Webbe House scored a total of 41 outs but it was Wisdome House who won the overall event, remaining unbeaten all day. Full results will be posted later this week.

Finally, in the afternoon of Saturday 16 May, several of our girls took part in tennis fixtures against Wycombe Abbey, who proved to be a little too strong, winning all eight matches. The standard of play was very good however with Paloma Hamilton-Bowker, Yasmin Hatton, Annabelle Roberts, Alicia Buckeridge, Phillipa Heath, Emily Oram and Isabelle Gibbs awarded top players of their matches.
