The Y8 girls rugby team continued their recent success on Thursday by coming second representing Redcar & Cleveland at the Tees Valley school games finals at Polam Hall School, Darlington.
In their first tournament with full contact rugby they made a flying start with a six tries to one demolition of Hartlepool. This was quickly followed by an even more impressive eight tries to two victory over local rivals Middlesbrough. We then came up against a very strong Darlington team and although a four try each half time score we eventually went down seven tries to four.
The girls then regrouped and finished the tournament with a massive four tries to zero win over Stockton to book their place representing the whole of Tees Valley at the north of England finals to be held in Newcastle after Easter.
Massive congratulations to the team on a fantastic effort!
