Sports fixtures results from this week

Year 10 boys basketball team had a fantastic start to the year, winning 39-30 in a strong team performance against St Albans Boys School. 

Year 9 girls netball team had their first match against STAGS on Wednesday, with new faces to the team and a great enthusiasm to improve their games, with extra lunch time and after school practice sessions, the girls fought well and saw some great improvements throughout the game, losing 16-7 against a strong STAGS team. 

Thursday saw Townsend host the district cross country, a gruelling long run in and around the school grounds and local fields. Some great performances from individual runners in all age groups, with some top 10 finishes and a third place from Stella in Year 7. 

Congratulation to all players involved in any of the matches this week, and those who are attending our lunchtime and afterschool sports extra-curricular clubs to improve their skills! Please encourage your child to get involved if they haven’t already! Students should look at the board in the PE corridor for dates and times of clubs.
