Wow! What a term St.Ippolyts has had as our sporting success continues to grow!

Back to January we first event of 2018 with the Year 2 cricket team taking part in the first ever competitive event for KS1. Congratulations to the team as the managed to return victorious. A day later this piled on the pressure for the year 3 & 4 cricket team who also managed to return with Gold and progressed through to the county final. The team travelled to Hatfield for the county round, and picking up where they left off, were able to win every game up to the final, including achieving the highest score of the tournament. Unluckily in the final we came out second best in a competition which 430 schools entered!

Later on that month following our trampoline regional success, we achieved second place at the zonal round, progressing through to the National trampoline final in Belfast, also in March. 4 of our girls travelled to Northern Ireland for this competition and with an amazing performance they placed 3rd in the country!

In February, both our Boys and Girls football teams played their semi-finals of the WIX cup. Our girls played fantastically but were unlucky to lose 2-1 in their game and just got edged out of the cup. Our boys managed to progress through to the final. After progressing through the tournament, our boys football team found themselves in the Wix Cup Final, although the boys were strong to come back from behind, they were beaten by the weather and a good opposition to take second in the competition, which ended up being enough to progress us into the County quarter final round of the tournament in Watford. Needing to win both games to progress to the semi’s, after an unbelievable fight and team spirit the boys pulled through to win, putting us top 4 in the county!

On Saturday the 3rd of February in St Albans, Mr Smith took a cross country team to compete in the County competition, finishing in the top half of all attending schools and showing promise for a summer of athletics.

Also in February we had our first indoor athletics experience of the year held at Barnwell School in Stevenage and the team performed admirably. Considering that some of the events were new to a number of our children, it was a good opportunity to practice some skills for later sporting years.

Our netball team played their first rally in early March and did fantastically returning unbeaten with a second place trophy. This event was held at Hitchin Girls School. The team played 5 games and scored 13 goals overall! Winning 4 and drawing 1!

The Year 4 team had their first experience of school football in March with a friendly rally, doing really well to win 3 of the 6 matches they played, showing great promise for the years to come.

These Year 4’s then teamed up with the Year 5 boys in one of our end of season rally’s, giving us a good chance to look forward to next year, the team performed really well and made it all the way through to the final without losing a game, they came up against Ickleford and despite playing a brilliant game, were unable to break through, eventually losing on penalties.

This was followed by our Year 6 team in their end of season rally, a good chance to warm up before the county round took place, after being put into a tough group the boys managed to finish 2nd in the group and narrowly missed out on a chance to progress to the semi-finals.

Have a Happy Easter and we look forward to more sporting success in the future.
