Year 3 & 4 Sportshall Athletics
St Mary's completed a hattrick of Year 3 & 4 Sportshall Athletics titles as this years team made it three wins in three years against their local rivals.
With some exceptional speed on the track and some high class field eventing St Mary's ran out winners by a comfortable 50 points.
Well done to all the children who competed, it was a fantastic team effort from everyone involved!
Year 6 Tag Rugby
For the second time in two days St Mary's became Knaresborough champions this time taking the Year 5 & 6 Tag Rugby title.
Two teams of Year 6 boys and girls competed against five other Knaresborough schools. Team B got off to a great start in their pool winning comfortably against St Johns. They then unfortunately fell to a defeat by eventual runners up Goldsborough A before scoring a last minute equalising try to draw against Sicklinghall.
Team A took on both Aspin and Goldsborough B in their pool winning both matches comfortably.
Team B then played off against Aspin for 3rd place but after an excited game were on the wrong end of a 5 - 3 scoreline.
Team A followed up their two pool victories with a win against Goldsborough A in the final. A pulsating game saw a late try win it for St Mary's 3 - 2 and qualify for the Harrogate finals in March.
Well done to both teams for some excellent rugby with some amazing tries scored. Also congratulations to Jacob A, Ruby and Thomas who were all nominated for Schools Games Values Wristbands.
Year 6 Quick Sticks Hockey
After the Half Term break the Year 6's were straight back into the sporting action competing in the Harrogate Partnership Quick Sticks Hockey tournament.
Three teams took part in some fast paced, high scoring matches with some excellent determination on show from all teams. Team A managed to gain two victories after two opening defeats which left them in 4th place in their pool of teams. Team B managed to finish one place higher, ending with the same record as Team A but finishing in 3rd place in their pool. Team C were unfortunate to only gain one draw from their four games but showed excellent team spirit as they were the only team where each child played every minute of every game.
Congratulation to all the children who competed and a big well done to David who was chosen for the respect School Games Value award.
