A Round-Up of Sport

28 February 2020

Throughout the week Forest School play fixtures across a number of sports. The matches played are highly competitive with some excellent performances from Forest teams.
This is what happened in the last week:

Sporting Highlights

Forest School Steeplechase
The traditional Forest Steeplechase was run this week involving all year groups in either a 2km or 5km run around our neighbouring Forest land. It was seriously muddy out there!
Winners as follows:

Seniors: Annalie Cole and Thomas Archer

Inters: Erin Francis and Nathan Wright

Lower: Abigail Reid and Carter Ford

Netball
Unfortunately rain stopped play for a lot of fixtures this week. However our A and C teams played Brentwood school as well as the U13Ds who played in a friendly against Park School.

Cross Country
At the Harrow South East Schools XC championships the girls race was ‘Open’ and included athletes who are juniors, inters and seniors. Abigail Reid as an U13 won overall, the first time a junior has ever done so. Rhys Edwards positioned in the top 10; as a bottom year senior this sets a precedent for next year!

Cricket
The London Youth Games cricket finals took place this week with four Forest girls representing Redbridge; Amelia Powell, Ashmita Surenkumar, Amu Surenkumar & Alice Luscombe. And they won overall!
