Both the netball and boys’ hockey seasons got underway this week with a block fixture for the boys’ hockey teams against Blundell’s last Saturday and a mid-week match for the 1st VII netballers on Wednesday. The 1st VII started their season with a 52-16 victory over Torquay Academy and will be in action again this weekend as the school host a 6 team pre-season netball tournament at the Paignton Sports Hub ahead.
The hockey teams also produced some pleasing performances against Blundell’s last Saturday and, despite a narrow defeat for the 1st XI in the national cup, honours were shared between the two schools with victories for the U14A, U12A&B and a draw for the U14B. The 1st XI now progress to the national plate competition and all the boys’ hockey teams will be in action on Saturday 20th January against either King’s, Bruton or Wellington School. We wish all of our teams success this season and hole they enjoy being part of their respective squads.
