Tag Rugby Festival
On Tuesday 5th March, Highfield took two teams to the Hawes Down Tag Rugby festival. The Highfield Hornets, captained by Barney T, played impressively throughout, looking to score with every possession and swarming the opposition in defence. The Highfield Harriers, captained by Rhys T, faced some tough opponents with enthusiasm, showing great progression as the festival went on. Well done to everyone involved.
Girls' Football Squad
After weeks of intense training, the O'Prey academy girls' football squad travelled to Clare House for our first ever fixture on Friday 1st March.
We found ourselves up against a far more experienced team of Year 5 and 6 girls but we certainly held our own. Captained by Iris B, the girls represented Highfield brilliantly: they played as a team, supported each other and were respectful to the opposition. Betsy C was aggressive in defence, with Thuy-Anh L working tirelessly up front. The final score was 3-1 to Clare House with Hanna K and Phoebe earning joint 'Player of the Match'. Hanna for scoring a screamer for Highfield and our goalkeeper, Phoebe with her cat-like reflexes, preventing any more goals from the opposition.
All-in-all, a wonderful first game for this development squad.
