Centre Parcs Badminton Competition
A boys’ team comprised from Y10 and Y11 pupils competed in the area round of the Centre Parcs Schools Badminton championships. Playing against other local schools, the Trent side played some excellent Badminton and comfortably saw off Long Eaton School and Ormiston School on their way to a ‘show down’ with Kirk Hallam. Both teams comprised County players and the standard of play was extremely high. In a series of 5 rubbers; two singles and three doubles matches, Trent lost out by the narrowest of margins. James Ashcroft (No1 seed) and Jonathan Shaw (No 2 seed) lost in timed games 11-15 and 12-16 respectively. The first two doubles matches finished all square at 11-11 and 14-14, which left the final doubles rubber dead and the victory secured by Kirk Hallam. Oliver Severn and Jonathan Shaw could not quite earn the side a point in this final match, eventually losing 11-16. All four boys are to be congratulated on their efforts and, with the exception of James Ashcroft (Y11), James Calder, Jonathan Shaw and Oliver Severn will return to compete in the age group again next year.
County Cross Country Championships
With this years’ County Cross Country Championships being postponed twice due to adverse weather conditions, it was third time lucky as Hedley Hardcastle ran into silver medal place in the Inter boys category, which earned him a vest for Derbyshire and a place at the National Championships later this month. The drier conditions suited his running ability and he was able to maintain his pace throughout the race at Mount St Marys College. Trent had two other runners in the Junior Boys and Junior Girls age groups, but both Cameron Bovell and Maddie Moore were unable to complete the race, due to injury over a very testing course. The English School Cross Country will take place on Saturday 15th March at Castle Donnington and our very best wishes go to Hedley on the day.
Harriet Evans Golf Star
Harriet Evans has been selected to represent Wales as part of the U16 National team to play in a Tournament in Wales over Easter. Her success has been steadily built over the past few years and her game has grown in strength. Hattie has already represented the Welsh U18 team last summer and we wish her well for the forthcoming competitions
