It has yet again been another full on and exciting week for sport at BHS. The extra-curricular programme has been thriving with football, rugby, hockey, netball, gymnastics and much more. Alongside that there have have been some regional hockey preparation fixtures, netball fixtures and the county schools round for netball.

I will begin with Monday where the U18 indoor hockey team travelled to St Georges College, Weybridge playing some excellent indoor hockey with the game finishing finely balanced at 3-3. A good preparation game for the regional heats coming up on 24th November. We also learned of their new £22 million sports centre with glass flooring - wow!

Tuesday saw the U18 outdoor hockey team travel round the M25 yet again to play Cranleigh - an excellent game of hockey finishing 3-1 to Cranleigh. An exceptionally strong side to play against and some inspirational performances from our team ahead of the regionals on Tuesday 7th November. On Wednesday the U18 outdoor hockey team also played at home against Kingston Grammar School and came out second best, a 5-2 defeat. One that we will be looking to overturn on Tuesday 7th November at regionals. A lot of hard work and preparation has been done by the U18 outdoor hockey team and I have no doubt they will do the school proud at regionals this coming Tuesday. 

Wednesday also saw the U18 netball team travel the other way round the M25 to play Broxbourne in preparation for their county schools on Saturday 4th November. An excellent strong game it was and our girls played some great netball to come away 23-20 winners.

On Thursday the U15 hockey team played St Edwards School with the game finishing 5-0. It was 4-0 in the first half and 1-0 in the second half - the progress the team made throughout the game was fantastic. U15 hockey is a difficult year with the majority of schools just playing U16 (Y10 & 11 combined) so the U15’s have to learn quickly in the games they do have! Well done to them all.

The U13A/B hockey teams also played on Thursday, against Headington School with the A team drawing 2-2 and the B team losing 3-0. There has been so much activity on our astro this week, not just the hockey but many PE lessons have taken place on there too. I could not imagine life at BHS without the astro so please do check out our campaign to #SaveOurAstro and help us get the new turf we need.

The U15 hockey team are pictured below: Izzy Spruzen, Katie Moroney, Emily Hearne, Charly Walker, Abbie Hjorring, Molly Miller, Annabel Golding, Simi Jarman, Hannah Rasheed, Hannah Burne, Jess Edmonds, Nicola Sykes and Charlotte Dent.

We then jump to Saturday where the U14, U16 and U18 netball teams competed in the rain at the County Schools Netball at Kingsmead. All three teams started the day off in style, all winning their first games - the perfect start to the competition. The 16’s and 18’s went on to win their next two games but the U14’s game was up against some stiff competition in DCHS, and they lost by one goal in the dying seconds and then lost by two to a very strong Pipers side. The standard of netball on display was exceptional. The U14’s picked themselves back up and went on to win their remaining four games finishing in 3rd place overall. This is a fantastic achievement for the team in my eyes, however, they came away feeling a little disappointed to not have qualified for the regionals (top two). They performed superbly well and should be very proud - next year will be the year!

The U16 and U18 teams also went on to win their remaining games meaning they both finished the tournament in 1st place as County Champions qualifying for the Regionals! An amazing achievement by both teams and one which the school is very proud of - well done to them all!

The U14 team: Freya Ingha,, Sophie Davies, Katherine Wober, Rosie Quick, Lizzy Tucker, Lucia Grundy, Anna Fisher, Sophia Martin, Alexia Martin and Libby Brown.

The U16 team: Anna Hearne, Annabelle Cowan, Kathryn Hewett, Maddy Harlow, Tilly Daymond, Flora Lockley, Ella Patrick, Ginny Kucera, Lucy Ashworth and Sahib Kaur.

The U18 team: Olivia Ball, Natalya Short, Hattie Heppner-Logan, Sadie Thomas, Ibby Akinseye, Amber Bains, Issy Highsted and Daisy Barrows.
