Year 8 Barnet Schools Rounders Tournament: Throughout the tournament, we won all our matches securing us a place in the final against St Martha’s. HBS just had the edge and scored a total of 3.5 rounders to win the game and the gold medal! I must commend our girls on their play - they were super, every member of the team fielding brilliantly and batting really well - all adding to the score and playing their part in the game. Well done girls - a great start to the season! HBS 6.5 – Whitefield’s 2; HBS 3.5 – The Compton 1.5; HBS 5 - East Barnet 2; HBS 4.5 - Copthall 2; Winners of pool; Final: HBS 3.5 – St Martha’s 2.
Barnet Schools Swimming Gala: On Thursday, seven girls from Year 7 & 8 attended the first Barnet Schools Swimming Gala at Barnet Copthall. We did very well and came first overall! We splashed the individuals: Allie Gruber (8G) got a 32.29 seconds for 50 metres freestyle, Rocio Leyva- Thomas (7B) got a personal best of 38.03 seconds for 50m backstroke and Maxine Huang got 40.81 seconds for 50m breastroke. We not only got either first or second for the individuals, but we also won both of our relays which were the 6x25m medley and the 6x25m freestyle relay. We headed back very happily with our gold medals having had a great day. Thank you to Miss Rodwell and Miss Fusi for taking us and well done to Sabrina, Jennifer J, Bianca, Rocio (all 7B) and Allie, Maxine, Mahliha (8G, 8B, 8H).
