Year 11 Rounders Tournament
The Year 11 Rounders Team played their very last tournament on Tuesday 1st May. Despite the poor playing conditions, the girls once again showed all the qualities of a team that have won the District Rounders Tournament three times before. A very close match against Rodborough forced the girls to really tighten up their fielding skills and stop Rodborough from scoring any more rounders with their finals bats. The game ended with a win for Glebelands, 6 ½ - Rodborough 6.
Their second match against Broadwater saw them batting first, scoring a huge 11 ½ rounders and then fielding so successfully that it led to Broadwater scoring just 6 ½.
Sports Leaders Afternoon
The Year 11 Sports Leaders put their leadership skills to the test when they each led a group of Year 7 students in an afternoon of sports coaching. Each leader delivered a pre-planned, 20 minute session to a small group of Year 7 girls or boys which included leading them through an active warm up, skill based drills and a fun, sport specific game to finish. In total, the Year 7’s took part in three sessions which developed their skills in netball or football and they also got the chance to see the Year 11’s as confident and organised Sports Leaders.
Both year groups worked extremely hard and were an asset to the school. A big thank you to the Year 7’s who gave up their time to be part of the afternoon, and congratulations to the Year 11 students who have successfully completed their Level 1 Sports Leader Award.
Year 8 Boys Football
The Year 8 Boys Football team were District winners after beating George Abbot
2 – 0 in the Guildford and District Schools cup final. The goals were scored by Tommy Whittle and Jacob Stiles - Well done to all the boys!
Glebelands Year 7 Sports Hall Athletics
Glebelands Year 7 Sports Hall Athletics Squad travelled to Broadwater School to compete against three other schools from the area. The events consisted of relays and single competitor races as well as indoor field events such as standing triple jump and vertical jump.
The boys team finished in 2nd place, and the girls finished in 1st which meant Glebelands took first place overall and secured a place at the finals which were held at the Spectrum in Guildford at the beginning of March. Here, the competition was tougher, involving larger schools from all over the county. Despite their brilliant efforts, Glebelands finished in 5th place out of 7 schools.
