Handball

Four teams from King's attended the County Handball Tournament at Cambridge University, representing Peterborough. The U15 Girls' team managed to finish 3rd overall with Alice Bennett named Player of the Day. The U15 Boys matched their performance by also collecting 3rd place medals, with Duncan Hoyland Player of the Day.

The U13 Boys, playing in their first ever competitive matches, started slowly, but managed to put together an impressive string of results; unfortunately they didn’t quite manage to go all the way and finished as silver medallists. Harry Pinguenet was named Player of the Day.

The U13 Girls, also playing their first competitive games, managed to go one better than the boys by winning every game and finishing as County Champions. They now go on to represent Cambridgeshire at the Regional Championships later on this year. Player of the Day was Sandra Benjamin.

Football

The Year 7 Girls played in their 7-a-Side tournament this week and after a slow start managed to draw four games, finishing 4th overall. Player of the Day was Ella Smith.

Cross Country

At the last of the Fenland League Cross Country events, 38 pupils represented the School across four different age groups. In the Junior Girls, Ruby Blakeley was impressive finishing 8th with Lilly Davis close behind in 9th.
