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…This was added to fact that this sport is becoming more and more popular in local primary schools - and so the competition is becoming tougher and tougher!
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 group stage.
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 our players for showing great teamwork and determination. We are all very proud of your performance and the fact you came away with a silver medal.
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.
