Sports Round-Up: Week 8

Our sports teams were pleased to be back in action this week after the half term break. Pupils have taken part in a football tournament at RGS The Grange, a Swimming Gala at ‘Big King’s’ and a rugby 7’s tournament at Warwick Junior School.

U9 Football Tournament at RGS The Grange.

On Tuesday the U9 football team headed up the road to take part in the RGS The Grange Football Tournament. The standard of football at the tournament was very high and our boys faced some strong opposition. Despite this the boys played well, losing only one of their matches due to a resilient defence! The last game of the day for the boys was by far their best – obviously saving the best for last. The team managed to put three goals past a ‘previously undefeated’ Winterfold team.

As always the boys were brilliant ambassadors for the school, displaying great sportsmanship on and off the field. It was brilliant to see so many parents in attendance; their support was greatly appreciated.

U10 & U11 Swimming Gala at King’s St Alban’s.

The U10 and U11 swimming teams headed to King’s St. Alban’s for a gala against the hosts and RGS The Grange. At this event, Hawford sent two mixed ability teams.  All of the swimmers involved behaved impeccably whilst at the gala and there was excellent swimming in every race.  All of the schools had brought strong swimmers and this was evident when the half-way scores came in, with three teams being level on points and so it was all to play for (or swim for shall we say?). Individual champions were: Erin L, Max M, Isaac P and Freddie P (Team 1) and Charlotte B, Poppy C and Barnaby B (Team 2).  In the medley relay events, the Year 5 teams put in a strong performance, beating their competition (Hudson M, Barnaby B, Max M and Freddie P, and Lottie H, Isla H-M, Harriette T and Erin L).  The front crawl relays were the final events of the evening and the Year 5 boys repeated their success from earlier (Jack M, Max M, Johnnie T and Freddie P).  A special mention must go to Freddie P, who was commended by the other schools’ staff after a particularly impressive front crawl leg in the U10 boy’s relay event.  The teams finished in a respectable 3rd (Team 1) and 4th (Team 2) place. All of the children were a credit to Hawford and should be proud of their performances.

U11 Warwick Rugby 7s Festival

The boys played some really impressive rugby in very challenging conditions at Warwick Junior School 7s festival.
