This week, St Thomas More pupils showed us how it's done, with successes in handball, swimming, rugby league and netball.
The U14 boys' handball team are this year's Haringey champions for the second year running, after delivering a number of convincing victories against Greig City, Alexandra Park School, Fortismere and Park View to secure 1st position. Michael and Moses produced fantastic individual performances to guide the team to victory.
The Year 8 girls' team played their tournament this week. With their skilful passing, leaping, hard-throwing and off-the-ball moving the Year 8 team finished 2nd in Haringey and the Year 9 team finished 4th. Congratulations to all the teams!
Swimming: Bronze Medallists
The St Thomas More boys' swimming team took the bronze medals in this year's Haringey swimming contest. Eight swimmers competed in a number of races to accumulate the most points for their team. Benjamin, Patrick and Gerard produced some excellent performances to secure the most points for St Thomas More.
After making it to the semi-finals of the National Cup, St Thomas More's Year 9 boys marginally lost to last year's champions in Surrey. Tries from Dainnan, Romeo, Ikenna, Chukwudi and Ronnie were not enough to obtain the victory, however this was a remarkable effort from the boys and they deserve high congratulations for finishing in the top four schools in the country!
This week, our Year 11 boys played fantastically against Marylebone. By the end of normal time, the score was 2-2. The match finished with an anxious victorious penalty shoot-out for St Thomas More School. Huber, Alex, Emmanuel and Donnabhan all converted on the spot to win the game 4-2 on penalties. The Year 11 boys' team have become the third year group in St Thomas More to progress to the quarter-finals of the Middlesex Cup this year. Great achievement boys!
Years 10 and 11 took part in their first mixed netball tournament at the University of Bedfordshire this week, and played against a number of teams. Nahome, Hannah, Colleen, Edric, Ayarna and Ade showed their amazing shooting, while Anna-Maria, Latriece, Joyce, Enrique, Donique, Zeus, Caleb, Matilda and Aaliyah protected the defensive third. David, David, Tei-Ann and Marlon played as Centre with Harley, Chairra, Malinda and Christina as Wings. They played against the University of Bedfordshire and drew 2-2. This was an amazing achievement as there was a minimum of a 3 year gap. Well done to all the players!
