Tournament Result – Thursday 19th January – Y5/6 Handball
On Thursday afternoon, our Y5/6 Handball Team traveled to Harvey Hadden to take part in our first ever tournament at this age grouping. With the Y3/4 Handball Team having won the last two City Schools' events there was a certain level of expectation placed on our older pupil's shoulders…
With handball being an up and coming sport in local primary schools, we knew the competition would be tough. The effort the team had been putting into training seemed to work as they made it all the way to the finals, following a series of impressive wins.
In the final we met Fernwood, who were very strong and played a similar style to Whitemoor. Both schools traded goals for most of the match, but unfortunately Fernwood kept their one goal lead long enough to win the gold medal.
Well done to the Whitemoor team for showing great teamwork and determination. We are all very proud of your performance and the fact you came away with a silver medal. A massive congratulations to all the boys and girls who took part in today's tournament.
Our Y5/6 Handball Team consisted of: Natasha C, Megan M, Millie G, Ciara H, Shania B, Daniel P, Castel B, Alfie G, Mason N and Harvinder D.
