Our sports teams got the new term off to a flying start this week as they had success in fixtures across a range of sporting disciplines, both home and away.
In the first of four matches this week, both our U14 and U15 teams played brilliantly against an equally impressive Millthorpe School. POMs Chloe and Miryam, along with the rest of the team, secured a double win for the Mount School teams after what was a great display of sportsmanship and skill. The younger girls are hoping to follow this exemplar performance as they welcome opponents from York High School to the courts on Thursday evening at home.
Elsewhere this week, our U12 – U18 teams hosted Harrogate Ladies College in Badminton fixtures and Swimming in what was a sport filled afternoon. The day concluded with an overall level playing field for the two schools as The Mount were victorious in the swimming pool, with Harrogate Ladies College leading the Courts.
The girls could not hide their excitement however at the 105 – 100 winning score in the swimming, as they playfully larked about in the water following the announcement.
Well done to everyone involved, and thank you to all who came to spectate and support all the teams.
