English Cross Country Championships

I was selected to represent Avon schools at the English Cross Country Championship. We travelled to Castle Donnington on the Friday evening so that we were fresh and ready for the cross-country race on Saturday, 15 March. There were 360 girls in my age group and I came 89th (this means that I was in the top 25% of the country). The Avon team came 7th overall out of 45 counties.

It was a fantastic experience as there were so many people there and I really enjoyed myself.

Year 9 Rugby Sevens

The Year 9 rugby team ended their season with a fantastic win at the QEH Rugby Sevens tournament. Having already been crowned Bristol Schools Champions to then being ranked as the fourth best U14 side in a South West Regional tournament, this was a final chance for the team to test themselves against tough opposition with the likes of St Mary Redcliffe, Castle School and Colston’s all taking part.

We were drawn in a group with Clevedon, QEH, Sidcot and Castle School, which was a difficult group considering only the top team would progress to the final.  Our first match was a 17-7 win against Clevedon, which gave us a great start, as they were big, tough opposition. The next match was a slightly different contest with us beating QEH 31-0 before another comfortable 29-0 victory against Sidcot.  This took us to the deciding group match against Castle. Both teams were undefeated from previous matches and the winner of this would go through to the final. We got off to an excellent start scoring an early converted try before Castle came into the match and made the score 7-5. The match continued to be close throughout until we got our second try to put the score at 12-5, which sent us through to the final.

Here we would face Colston’s who had experienced similar group success to ourselves. Against a well-organised side we proved that our defence was just as good as our attack with some phenomenal tackling. Another early try put us in the lead and this was followed up by a second just before half time to put us 10-0 up. The second half continued to be tight and Colston’s went on to score and convert, leaving a tense finish with the score line at 10-7. Our effort in the final minutes was incredible and we held on to record a well-deserved 10-7 win and finish as winners in our first appearance at the tournament.

Congratulations to the squad: Harry; Cameron; Barny; Jordan; Elliott; Will (Capt.); Rhys; Sammy; Ollie; Alex; Sam.
