Girls Borehamwood District Tournament
Five teams partook in this year’s Borehamwood district football tournament, which was held at Radlett Prep. During the group stage, the girls won two games, drew one and lost one. After this, we were straight into the final against Radlett Prep. The final was a very close game overall; but the final score was three – one in favour of Radlett Prep. All of the girls showed great determination, effort and commitment during all of the games. The squad demonstrated some excellent play throughout the tournament and were unlucky not to win.
Boys Borehamwood District Tournament
Five teams also partook in this year’s Boys Borehamwood district football tournament. During the group stage, we beat Habs four – two, beat Radlett Prep one – nil along with drawing and losing one. As a result, we went straight into the final against Habs who had won three out four games at the group stage. The final was a very close game in which we won 2-0 with Beau and Zachary scoring. After winning the trophy, the boys will represent the Borehamwood District in the next regional stage.
Belmont Mill Hill Prep School U11 ‘Oti’ Cross Country Relay Race 2017
On Wednesday 1st March, Manor Lodge competed in the Belmont Prep Schools annual ‘Oti’ cross country relay race. The event was a six person relay race around an ‘Oti’ course (which was named in memory of Sylvester Oti, a boy who went to the school, but sadly passed away at 12 years old), which was approximately 1400m through woodland. Each runner was timed over the course and then this was documented, resulting in an individual time for each participant and eventually an overall time for the team.
This was the second time that Manor Lodge had competed in this event and the boys and girls were keen to perform as well as they had done last year.
The girl’s team, which consisted of Sofia Sartori (6E), Yasna Malick (6C), Grace Dersookiasian (5S) Cleo Andrea (5S), Katerina Kenny (5C) and Darcie Hambury (5E), performed brilliantly on the day and produced some wonderful running to eventually finished sixth out of eleven teams. Congratulations to Sofia Sartori (6E), who was the fastest runner for the second year in a row.
In the boy’s competition, Kameron Lall made a wonderful start, recording the fastest time in the team. This was followed by excellent running by Sam Piler (6C), Asa Stewart-Harris (5C), Oliver Segal (Phoenix), Toluwani Ayetan (6E) and Barney Amess (6E). The boys eventually finished sixth out of thirteen teams. This is a great results against some very tough opposition.
Well done to everyone that took part.
All staff, pupils and parents are expected to follow the IAPS Sport Code of Practice.
