Netball & Swimming Wins



17/11/2016

 

The Junior School has enjoyed a great sporting start to the week with wins on the netball courts and in the pool.

Netball

Year 5 and 6 girls took on Fosse Bank in a Netball match yesterday. The girls were in mixed year group teams and played versatility for half the match. There was some excellent shooting by girls who were out of position and some fantastic interceptions! The A team won 25-2 and the B team won 13-1!

Players of the match were Martha for the A team and Beatrice for the B team, well done girls!

Swimming 

Our U9 and U11 swimmers competed against Kent College on Tuesday evening at home.  In a closely fought battle, particularly with our younger swimmers, the results were as follows:

Kent College                                                           WH

U9’s            81 points                                               U9’s          76 points

U11’s          70 points                                               U11’s        87 points

Final overall scores (including Squadron relays):

Walthamstow Hall                           185 points

Kent College:                                   165 points

There were several first place swims as mentioned below; however, the strength of the team was also due to lots of 2nd and 3rd place swims plus no disqualifications! and therefore Walthamstow Hall came home with a deserved win.

The team achieved 8 first places as follows.

In the U9 age-group: 

Isabella L                                 25m Backstroke                                  (C& D Event)

In the U11 age-group:

Freya                                       25m Backstroke                                  (A& B Event)

Lily S                                       25m Butterfly                                      (C& D Event)

Medley Relay                         4 x 25m                                                (A& B Event)

Congratulations to all the swimmers on an excellent performance against some tough competition!  Also, thank you to our helpers and team managers for your hard work in assisting with the smooth running of the evening’s events, without you this would not have been possible.  You did Wally proud!
