AGGS Under 15s Hockey County Champions 2018

Saturday 24th March 2018 
Today was the under 15s county tournament at AGGS. 4 teams entered and there was some fantastic hockey played by all teams.  AGGS were determined to play well today. Their enthusiasm and positive attitudes were rewarded with a clean sweep winning each of their games and being crowned county champions. I am so proud of their hard work and effort this season, and today was the icing on the cake.

Report

Game 1 vs Stockport was a well fought match and a good opener to the morning with a 5-0 win. Goals came from Nadia, Freya, Emma and Annie.

Game 2 vs Cheadle Hulme was the game they were most looking forward to as they hadn’t yet managed to beat Cheadle  in the four years these two teams have been playing against each other. Annie winning a penalty flick in the first 5 minutes meant AGGS secured the lead and some frantic defending against a strong Cheadle side in the last few minutes of the game saw their hopes come true with a 3-1 win.  Their best ever results against this strong hockey school.

Their final game vs Withington also finished with a 3-0 victory seeing AGGS as the winners of the day.

Cheadle Hulme came second with a greater goal difference than Stockport, and Withington finished in 4th.

The AGGS team was  Captain Emma S, Vice Captain, Rosie, GKs Shona and Charlotte, players Pheobe, Maddie, Annie, Lucy, Aude, Mary, Freya, Nadia, Anna.

A special thank-you also goes to Mrs Simpson who’s Saturday morning cakes are unrivalled. Delicious as usual – thank you xx

Just Add Water !!

Wednesday 21st March 2018 

Just got home from hockey practice with the AGGS junior teams. Over 50 students turned up tonight to celebrate the end of the season with a fancy dress training session.

Coaches Mrs “Tigger” Hardicre and Mrs “Dinosaur” Reynolds  were joined by the year 7 zebras, year 8 hoodies and balloons and the year 9 swimmers.
Each year group was split into four teams and we had ourselves a mini  round robin tournament followed by a penalty shuffle.

Well done to teams “Im Not Sure” , “Shrek” and “The Best” for taking part and to our winners – team “Just Add Water”.

Thank you all for a fantastic hockey season. Enjoy the summer break and we will see you all on the training ground in September.

Here are some photos from the evening

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.
