Over the course of the weekend, the teams took part in a number of matches, with Year 9 Gold finishing 4th in their group, Year 9 CLW Skye and Year 7 CLW both finishing 6th in their group.

Year 8 CLW Navy finished 4th in their group, Year 8 CLW Pink finished 7th and Year 8 CLW Black finished 8th in their group.

The Year 8 teams went into the plate competition with the Navy team winning all of their matches. They then went on to play in the knockout stages and finished in 3rd place.

Said Mrs Jones: “With 59 teams taking part over this weekend there was a wide variety of ability from clubs to schools. The progress made by our girls over this weekend was amazing, their determination definitely stood out. “

When not playing students got the chance to take part in a variety of adventurous activities including high ropes, abseiling and climbing.
