On Thursday 3rd April our Y9 rugby team won their first ever trophy at Redcar Rugby Club. The students have been playing in a tri school’s tournament verses rivals Ryehills and Bydales in a combination of fixtures over the past four weeks. The Y9 boys went undefeated throughout the 4 weeks of rugby scoring 192 points and just conceding 71.
Mr Williams (Year 9 Coach) said “It has been an outstanding achievement from the students to win their first ever trophy. We have had a tough couple of years of building the team and not getting many positive results. But I think we have evidenced that through hard work and training anything can be possible”.
The season is now finished until September. However, all teams will be working on their strength and conditioning this summer term with training continuing on a Thursday after-school.
