Handball Competition

On Monday evening our YR9 & 10 Boys embarked on their first ever competitive handball competition which was held at our Lady St Chads. The tournament was a fantastic opportunity for the lads to showcase what they have learnt in PE lessons and compete against the top schools in the city. It was very competitive with our lads getting better and better as the night went on, playing some really quick and effective handball. Our YR9 team finished 3rd in the group where they picked up a really impressive win against Wednesfield in their last game to show that they had really improved as a team across their games scoring some fantastic goals. The YR10 team went one better and they finished 2nd in their group which meant they qualified for the knockout stages, the lads picked up convincing wins against Thomas Telford UTC and Aldersley in their group. The boys came up against Group A winners and overall champions on the night Our Lady St Chads in the semi finals where they gave a really good account of themselves narrowly missing out on a place on the final but some fantastic play was on show. They then went into the Bronze medal match against Moreton where they lost in the last seconds of the game to a fantastic goal scored by the opposition resulting in the YR10 Lads finishing the 4th best handball team in the city, a great achievement considering they have never played the sport competitively. All of the lads were a credit to the school and performed really well with some fantastic skill on show. 

We now move onto the YR9 & 10 Girls competitive next Monday.
