Year 8 boys took part in the prestigious President's Trophy
water polo tournament at the weekend. The team made a great start
to the cup by winning the group stages of this national knockout,
beating every team along the way. In the semi-final the boys won
convincingly, which set up a final against King Edward's School,
Birmingham, whom they had already beaten in the group
In the final, the U13s had a terrific start going 2-0 up within
minutes, only to be pegged back to 2-1 at half time. However, in
the second half, the boys let their form drop, and a couple of
costly mistakes meant the game finished 4-2 to King Edward's.
Coaches Mr Howard and Mr Windsor said: "It was a tremendous
effort from all of the boys to get as far as the final. The
lads were a bit upset at losing at the final hurdle, especially
seeing as we had already beaten KES in the group stages, but
we were extremely proud of our Year 8s for getting that far."
Last year, an U13 team from Bolton School ran out winners.
