Congratulations to the Seniors boys, Inter girls, Junior boys and Junior girls who raced in the regional round of the ESAA, held at Judd School. The Inter girls team finished second and qualified for the national finals in Suffolk.
Well done to the U13A boys for winning the Sevenoaks Futsal Tournament, competing against five other schools.
We have had many successes in hockey this week.
The U18 girls Indoor Team won the County Tournament and progress through to the regional rounds. Throughout the day, they scored 20 goals and conceded only two.
The U13C won the Hurst Hockey Tournament, beating Brighton 2 – 1 in the final with a last second winner.
The U13A’s won the UK Sports Academy tournament, winning all six matches.
The U12A’s won the In2Hockey County Hockey Tournament.
The first eleven played Epsom College on Friday night in the Tier one league (the best Hockey Schools in the South East). After being 2 – 0 down and missing some key players, they showed tremendous character to bring the game back to 2-2 and were unlucky not to secure the win.
Very well done to all the teams that competed.
Over the weekend, eight Sevenoaks students (as two teams) participated in a keel boat match racing competition at Weymouth. The students competed in Keel boat sailing which was a whole new experience as they didn’t have access to this type of boat in training.
On the first day they raced well with both Sevenoaks teams coming head-to-head. They were also very successful on the second day, winning twice as many races. This was largely due to the students having better understanding for the rules of the competition and how to sail such large boats. The sailors were even lucky enough to see a dolphin gliding through the course alongside them.
Both teams thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are hopeful to participate in the competition again next year. The students showed incredible physical ability to sail such large and challenging boats. We hope that we can spark a passion or interest in more people for sailing as we are incredibly fortunate to have brilliant coaches and access to excellent equipment and facilities.
Well done to the KS3 boys and girls teams who have advanced through the National Stage 1 round and move into the regional round.
Congratulations to Tasia Nahornaya who has been selected to represent Kent U15’s.
