Football, Netball and Cricket
The footballers were busy last year with teams playing in the Albion Cup in Brighton. The girls team won their group and then the final – coming home wet but with medals! They played a great passing game for most of it and really enjoyed playing the other schools. The victory meant they got to play in the Sussex Finals the following week where they played the best schools from each area at the Brighton and Hove Elite Performance Centre in Lancing. A high-standard of play was seen yet we won our group and then unluckily lost in the semi-final. A brilliant performance!
We sent two mixed Y5/6 teams to the Albion Cup. They enjoyed the challenge and the standard was very high. One team narrowly missed out on a semi-final slot and they all enjoyed the opportunity to play at a venue with a stand and a great pitch. Miss Hayward-Tapp and Miss Heywood were the managers for the day and noted how well the children represented the school.
The netball team played against teams from South Malling at the Southdown Club. The players enjoyed the experience and showed the success of their training. They have two more fixtures left in the local league for this term.
The cricketers - girls and boys - performed at their best in the Lewes area competition and both qualified for the finals at Sussex CCC training ground. Due to sports day, only the girls were able to go and played really well, winning half their games against the best from the county.
Southover get Active
The Lewes cross-country races saw over forty children from Southover running around the fields at the Stanley Turner ground. They really enjoyed representing the school and didn’t mind the mud or the hard work. Everybody who took part showed great determination and fitness. Increased running at school this year with the 'k-a-day' helped to get some great performances.
Joshua was the Y6 champion managing a sprint race to finish the long-distance race in first place!
Blythe was a medal winner in the Y6 girls race – 3rd place!
And the Y5 girls were a great team in their race with gold, silver and bronze going to Southover: Lexi, Lara and Ivy!!!
Y3 runners also performed brilliantly with Edwin and Holly third in their races, and Annie in first place!
Our Y6 boys team came second in the team race behind Wallands and the girls team came first! The leading runners from the area will go through to the area finals.
