This week our pupils excelled across a broad range of sports, from badminton to basketball to football.
Year 7 Basketball
The Year 7 boys' basketball team has made it to nine wins out of nine after winning their first game in the Enfield Cup. Daniel Situ came off the bench to score a number of lay-ups for the team. The final score on the evening was 18-2 to St Thomas More School. The team is also through to the Haringey League final after winning their final league game against Gladesmore school. The final score was 33-8, with Jakub, Jesse, Wisdom and Jahzye all scoring several baskets.
Year 8 Indoor Athletics
The legacy continues after the boys' and girls' teams were both crowned champions on Wednesday evening. St Thomas More pupils are Haringey Indoor Athletics Champions for the sixth year running. Fantastic individual performances from Michael Osuji, Romeo Emenike and Kashieve ensured a gold medal for the boys' team. Blessing's individual performance was also special as she finished first in the two lap sprint for the girls. The Year 8 teams have joined our Year 7 teams in the London Youth Games and will also represent Haringey.
Boys' Basketball Trip
Due to St Thomas More's recent success in boys' basketball, a number of pupils were awarded a trip to watch the Under 18 National Cup Final. Our pupils travelled to Colchester on a Saturday afternoon to watch the Haringey Hawks beat the Reading Rockets 73-71. The boys' basketball team were also fortunate enough to get a picture with the Haringey Hawks after their win. Former student Joseph Bautista was in the Haringey Hawks' line-up.
