Sporting Glimpses of Brilliance - w/e 13th December 2019
Maddy Gale, Carlysle Bailey and Jack Elsworth represented the School at the Under 17 British Selection Event in Hendon, London, last weekend. Carlysle and Jack both fenced well to reach the elimination rounds. Carlysle lost his first elimination round but gained valuable experience on his first appearance at a national ranking event. Jack lost his second elimination round and finished in the middle of the field. Maddy was strong in the preliminary round but lost in her third elimination round. This performance placed her in 9th place overall in this National Event. Based on their performance over the season, Maddy and Matthew Goodwin have been selected to represent the Eastern Region at the Winton Cup team tournament where all the regions compete for the overall cup.
The Under 14A hockey team ended 2019 with a fantastic performance against Coopers School, winning 3-0. Excellent work rates by all the girls secured their victory with goals from Maddy Austin, Amelia Hortin and Ellie Merritt. Well done girls!
Last weekend, we played our last block rugby fixture of the year against a very strong Dartford Grammar School.There was some very close and competitive games with the highlights of the morning the U12C 45-5, U14A 21-5 and U14 B 15-5 victories. In other news, the Under 14 team played their final group fixture in the Essex Cup on Monday, with victory securing a home tie in the quarter-finals. An inspired performance from William Howard ensured a 26-21 victory over Southend High School for Boys. The Under 15 team has enjoyed an excellent week by also qualifying for the Essex Cup quarter-finals after beating Hall Mead School 81-19. On Tuesday, the team took one step further with a fourth round Natwest National Vase victory over Coopers’ Coborn, 41-5. We now enter the last 16 and play St Lawrence College. Well done to try scorers Ovie Jeyibo (2), James Jupp, Matthias Milki, Peter Tyrer Jolly, Will Howard and Jack Ridgwell.
Last weekend, the football term finished with 4 out of 6 wins against Westminster School. The glimpse of brilliance came from Daniel Abebe who scored an incredible goal (reminiscent of Heung-min Son’s superb solo effort against Burnley). On the football field we are delighted to report that Millie Stacey attended the ISFA camp earlier this week and played in a 2-0 victory over Scotland Schools. Harrison Clayden and Sam Elwood are also at St George's Park with their respective ISFA representative squads. We look forward to hearing of their endeavours.
Amongst many highlights, the netball term finished with a flourish as the Under 15 team beat St George's 43-20. All of the girls were outstanding but the shooting of Isabelle Toms and defensive prowess of Taaliyah Foster ensured progress to ISNC round 4.
