NHEHS Weekly Sports Update March 6th – 13th 2020
A huge well done to the Year 9 dance squad who came second at the Regional Qualifiers on March 9th in Stevenage and are now through to National Finals!
To end the season, the cross country squad were crowned Ealing Schools Relay Cross Country Champions for the fourth year in a row and our B and C squads also managed to achieve 4th and 5th places, beating some schools’ A squads! Three girls in the A squad also received additional medals for the best split time in their age group. The winning team was Natasha (Year 7), Nicola (Year 8), Ella (Year 9), Eva-Marie (Year 10) and Jasmine (Year 11).
NHEHS took on Godolphin & Latymer in an U12-U18A gymnastics fixture at home on 10th March and took the win by 113.5 points to 108.5.
We hosted G&L in a number of netball fixtures on March 10th, with the U16A team losing narrowly 13-15 (MVP Izzie), the B winning by 11-10 (MVP Lauren) and the U15A by 18-16 (MVP Jasmine), although the u15B lost 13-18 (MVP Bella). Lady Eleanor Holles School came to NHEHS on 11th March for a round of U14 fixtures, with NHEHS winning three out of four: U14A won 11-6 (MVP Sephera), U14B won 11-10, U14D won 7-6 (MVP Sarah-Jane & Heather), with just the C team losing out 12-15 (MVP Leah). The U12A and U13A teams played a great match against each other in preparation for the Middlesex County tournament next week.
Pole to Pole for Sports Relief
We took part in Sports Relief as part of the GDST’s Pole to Pole initiative whereby all schools joined together to collectively cover the distance from the North to the South Pole. All girls from Years 7-13 took part as NHEHS were challenged to complete 376 km during the week.
By the end of the week, we had managed to complete 84 km of swimming 48.05 km of rowing, 264.3 km of running/walking and 686.58 km of Zumba, making a grand total of 1082.715 km! We even managed to get a mention on BBC 1 from Strictly’s Oti Mabuse!
We also held a wear your own clothes day on Friday, encouraging girls to dress up as their sporting heroines and raise more money for Sport Relief.
