Year 7 and 8 Badminton Interform

Almost 100 pupils attended the year 7 and 8 badminton interform competition tonight down at Altrincham leisure centre. There were some excellent performances and it was really good to see so many girls wanting to be involved in sport.

A huge thank you also goes out to the excellent sports leaders who  came down to umpire, keep score and run the competition. It couldn’t have happened without their help so thank you.

Next week sees year 9 and 10 complete their competition.

AGGS vs Alderley Edge School Badminton Competition

Well done to the 16 young ladies from AGGS who took part in the badminton fixture last night vs Alderley Edge. The games were very competitive which some good rallies and the competitive atmosphere was friendly and fun.

In the Under 14s group lots of games were very close and high scoring. AGGS beat Alderley Edge 5 games to 4 in round 1 and the scores were reversed in round 2 with Alderley Edge winning 5-4, making this round a tie at 9 games all. There was a great match between Anusha and Lauren ending 20-22 and  Samyu and Amy ending 21-19.

In the under 16s and under 18s age groups the results were less close with AGGS winning 18 games to 0 and 12 games to 0 with impressive performances from Maariyah in the singles beating her opponent 21-1 and Olivia and Sophie in the doubles beating  their opponents 21-4.

The girls will continue to train on Monday nights down at Altrincham Leisure centre and anyone else interested in joining our team should come down too.  All the information and dates are on the notice board at school. All rackets and coaching provided for £2.

English School Cross Country Finals

Saturday 25th November, 5 AGGS cross country runners set off down to Kent very early in the morning for the Cross Country Finals.

Ms Payne wrote: All girls ran really well and should be very proud. Sadly Emma had to drop out due to injury but there were beautiful conditions on a really fast course: it wasnt quite the muddy and hilly course we are used to up north.

Congratulations to our finishers in order of position;
43 Millie P
47 Laura H
86 Charlotte L
91 Aimee R
DNF Emma S

This meant that AGGS were 18th overall with a score of 267.

Well done.

Pitcured, Millie, Laura, Aimee, Charlotte and Emma.

A huge thankyou from the PE department to Ms Payne for attending as the team manager and for the parents of the competitors for driving the girls all the way to the event and for cheering them along. Without parental support we couldn’t enter events like this and I know the girls are very grateful. Lets hope the finals are closer to home next year!
