North Yorkshire Boccia and Table Cricket Champions!
30 November 2017
I took a team of 13 students to Poppleton centre for the North Yorkshire Boccia and Table Cricket tournament. We were up against 8 schools from around North Yorkshire. We got off to a really bad start in the Boccia losing our first match 2-1 but then smashed it and won all our 7 remaining matches to beat a school from Northallerton in a very competitive final 6-1. The win also made it our 6th Boccia championship title in a row!
The table cricket team won their matches and beat Welburn school in the final.
Our two captains, Tom Metcalfe and Leon Pring were fantastic in leading their teams to success. We now go onto the Yorkshire finals early next year so watch this space! It was really encouraging to use two of our Year 7 students, Cohen Martin and Izzy Walker who did the team proud.
A big thank you as always to the staff and parents who came along to support, It is great that the organisers always say how good it is to see such support from parents.
