14 of the year 10 Sports Leaders helped run the year 5 and 6 Sports hall athletics finals at Altrincham Leisure Centre on Wednesday.
They did a great job and were praised for their hard work and efficiency by the organisers. They really enjoyed the experience and can now look forward to the year 1 and 2 events which start just before Easter.
Well done to the U14 ‘A’/’B’ team for their 3-1 against Lymm’s ‘A’ team. In the squad of 14 players there were 6 ‘A’ team players but in the match only 3 of them played at any one time. The girls who do not normally play on a Saturday morning played some excellent hockey. Well done girls. We have so much strength in depth in year 9 at ‘Alti Girls’.
A year 7 team competed in the Manchester Schools’ Invitation competition last Friday. There were schools from all over the Greater Manchester area and the opposition was tough. It was the girls first experience of running/jumping/throwing in an indoor arena and they all performed well. The team came 10th overall out of 16 schools.
Well done to Olivia 7-4 who received a bronze medal in the 200m.
We set off to Preston Arena not knowing if we had enough players to play as so many had rung in saying they had been ill all night or were still recovering from illness!!!
1stX1 lost 3-1
U16X1 with only 3 of their age group available played with a mixture of year 12’s, 11’s, 10’s and 9’s. Even so they won 1-0. Mrs O’Neal had been watching and said they played really well together. So much for practicing as a team!!!!!
U15X1 won 2-0
U14X1 won 1-0
The year 7 and 8 mini teams were the teams mainly designated by ill players
U13’A’ lost 4-2. U13’B’ lost 1-0
U12’A’ lost 4-0. U12’B’ lost 3-2
It is the first time in a while that the junior teams have lost so it will give them something to think about in the matches after half term.
There are NO matches next Saturday as it is half term.
There are also NO matches the first week back as free half term as most of the schools we play are on their half term.
The next fixtures are on Saturday 4th March for U18 (their county tournament at Home) and the year 7 tournament at Arnold/Queen Mary School , Lytham. Sorry no matches for U16, U15, U14 or U13.
It’s the time of the season when there are tournaments so we are not able to offer full fixtures. See fixture card for further details.
