Here are the results from our most recent sporting fixtures:
Under 18 girls vs Egglescliffe School
THS A vs Egglescliffe A, lost 14 – 7.
THS B vs Egglescliffe B, lost 22 – 4.
The A match was very competitive with us just having a spell after half time where we allowed Egglescliffe to score a few goals quickly and seal the lead.
Players of match: A team, Kate Brownlee and B team, Lydia Neave.
Y10B Netball v Northfield. THS win 12-4. Player of the match Sarah Bennett.
Mrs Hockborn writes: “Our Year 7 and 8 netball teams excelled themselves again last week. 7A and B squads played Egglescliffe school. The A team won 15-3 and the B team drew 0-0. The draw did not reflect the standard of play and our aim for the next game was to convert all shots at goal. This was easily achieved the next evening in their match against St. Patricks, with them winning 4-0. Our 8B team won 7-2. All of the girls have worked very hard and have had outstanding results against other, larger schools with 200 plus pupils in their year group. Well done ladies – I am very proud of you.”
Hockey – girls
Under 16 girls beat Kings Academy 9 – 0.
Following their runner-up spot in the County Tournament, our Under 16 girls played in the North East Semi-Finals. They improved throughout the day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Under 13s lost narrowly to The Chorister School.
Our Under 12 team played their first ever fixture and were narrowly beaten by Red House in a very close game.
Congratulations to Martin Diamond and Henri Wilks-Stebbings for qualifying for the next stage of the Durham County rugby trials.
We enjoyed a very competitive Senior House Rugby competition on 6 November. Roseberry won a close fought tournament, winning two of their games and drawing with Wainstones. Oliver Helyer was in fine form for Roseberry, who had strength in depth and deserved to win. Kit Barker bulldozed over for a couple of tries and on this occasion managed not to get injured. All games were close with Michael Diamond and Henry Johnson scoring and Sohrab tackling brilliantly.
Now that we have had backboards installed in the sports hall, we have entered an Under 14s basketball league, starting in January 2014.
