On Tuesday 28th March 12 pupils from Y5 and Y6 competed at Lord Lawson of Beamish School in the Tyne and Wear county finals.
Our 2 teams competed with great focus and determination, wonderful team spirit and sportsmanship against the final 12 teams – with the aim of becoming Tyne and Wear County champions.
The children put into practice all of their training and advice to communicating with one another in order to produce some outstanding shots.
Our team 1, despite winning all of their games missed out on gold, due to the number of points they scored. However team 3 with 3 wins and 1 close defeat were crowned county champions!
This truly is phenomenal – in our first county finals winning and finishing as runners up is tremendous, an unforgettable achievement for our school and the pupils.
Bakhtawar Hayer (Captain) of Stanhope 3 hit a wonderfully precise shot to secure a 3-1 win for his team.
Well done to everyone that took part on the day and for all of your hard work and time when practising for many months before the competition (it was certainly worth every minute).
The teams consisting of: Stanhope 3 — Bakhtawar Hayer, Evie Harle and Tyler Thompson (GOLD) and Stanhope 1 — Kai Muir (Captain), Lucas Dunn and TJ Ridley (SILVER).
I’m bursting with pride for all of you.
