Clare Mount Students Shine at Merseyside Dodgeball Tournament
On Thursday 14th October, 13 of our year 8 students took part in an annual Merseyside-wide Dodgeball tournament at Greenbank Sports Academy in Liverpool. We had so many students interested in taking part that a decision was made to enter two squads; The Ninjas and The Warriors! They both performed magnificently throughout the day.
As the competition progressed, although both teams had fantastic wins against most of the other teams, the Ninjas finished the group stages in 2nd place and the Warriors in 4th place; and so we went on to contest both the overall final and the 3rd and 4th place play-off.
Sadly, in both final games, we narrowly missed out (8-4 in the final and 12-10 in the play off) but most importantly the teams grew in confidence, team spirit and skill level as the tournament progressed. It was amazing to see the tactics improve throughout the day.
A big shout out to Charlie E and Lewis C for captaining both sides brilliantly.
Well done Charlie, Lewis, Freddie, Oscar, Harry, Daniel, Jack, Seth, Josh, Theo, Alfred, Joel and Nathan.
Can't wait for the next one!
A very proud Mr Byrne!!
