It has been another hugely successful term for Worth in a wide variety of sports and it was lovely to be able to reward excellence with the presentation of trophies, colours and half colours.
At the final assembly of the term, awards were presented for Most Valuable Player and Most Improved Player for the U13 to U15 age groups in hockey, rugby and football. In addition, colours and half colours, which are the most prestigious sports awards at the School, were presented for hockey and rugby.
Our 1st XI hockey girls and 1st XV rugby boys have enjoyed a particularly successful Autumn Term. The hockey girls won nine and drew two of their 13 fixtures under our new Head of Hockey, double Olympian Mr Calum Giles., while the rugby boys won eight of their 10 fixtures this term, including seven out of eight in the Daily Mail Trophy.
Other highlights include the U16A rugby team winning five and drawing one from eight matches while the U15B boys have won four out of six. The 2nd XI hockey girls only lost three of their 11 games and the U13A team finished the term unbeaten. The U13A football team won five and drew one from eight matches.
The lacrosse girls won their first game at the Charterhouse House, the U13 swimmers dominated proceedings at the Cumnor House gala recently and the senior basketball team enjoyed an impressive 47-44 over Michael Hall just before the end of term – a match which included debuts for two Year 9 pupils. The School also enjoyed its first badminton match for many years and while the team lost 28-26 it was great to get badminton fixtures going again.
Well done to everyone who received awards and to everyone who has represented the School in a sports team this term.
