May and June Sports News

 

This was a busy time of the year!

The U11 Mixed Netball League started and then culminated 6 weeks later; two teams represented the school, with the 'A' team finishing 6th in the league whilst the 'B' team came 7th in their group. Well played to both teams!

The U11 'A' mixed hockey team won all their group games to progress to the semi-finals, where they beat Oakwood 1-0 before defeating Bitterne C of E 6-2 in the final. These were the only goals they conceded whilst scoring in excess of 30 goals! Well played to our 'B' team as well, who finished 5th in their group.

32 Children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 attended the two respective Tri Golf tournaments at Southampton Sports Centre. All the players practised and improved their golf skills; special mention to our Year 3 and 4 team who finished second in their league.

A large number of girls continued to attend the weekly girls' football training at Eastleigh Football Club every Thursday after school. More the twenty girls have been attending each week, with five of the girls (Holly, Adele, Charlotte, Layla and Hannah) being invited to attend U12 training with the same club. So, well done to those girls!

Our Year 3 and 4 boys' football team lost a close friendly match to Fair Oak.

The cricket season started in May. Our U11 boys' team lost both their County Cup matches to two very strong teams (Brockenhurst and Abbotswood). But they more than made up for these two losses by reaching the final of the City Cup, where they defeated a strong Shirley Junior team. The U10 boys' team won both their group matches as they reached County Finals Day next month. Not to be outdone, the U11 girls' team won all their matches (including a last ball victory in the final against Shirley Junior!) to win the City Cup.

Finally, sixteen lucky girls and boys were the guard of honour at the England versus South Africa T20 match before watching England comprehensively defeat their opponents.

Springhill finished 7th out of 22 schools; special mention to Sophie (1st in LS Girls' 60m - a new city record of 8.81 seconds!), Francesca (2nd in LS 400m), Theo (2nd in LS 60m), Harriet (2nd in 60m) and or 4 x 100m LS girls' relay team (Sophie, Jeffy, Francesca and Harriet) who won the relay.

Winning all three trophies (girls, boys and overall) showed one of the many strengths in sport of Springhill, namely swimming. Well done to our twelve swimmers again this school year.

Children from Year F, 1, 2 and 6 enjoyed their annual Roadshow on the MUGA with students from Solent University, as they took part in various sports challenges. A week later, the annual School Sports Day took place as every child in the school, with the exception of Year F, displayed their sporting prowess.

Two of four mixed tennis teams reached the City Final where our 'C' team beat the 'A' team in a close match.

Thirteen Year 2 children practised and improved their football skills at a City Football Festival.

June ended with the Hampshire and IOW Games in Aldershot where twenty-two children from Springhill represented Southampton against twenty-four other schools from around the county. Our mixed U11 hockey team finished 11th, the U11 girls' football team were 6th and the highlight was a silver medal to the Year 3 and 4 tennis team. Well played all of you!
