All the latest sports news at the November Exeat.
Congratulations to the U11 girls that won the Bryanston Tournament and then played some super hockey at their IAPS National Finals.
We wish our U12 team that are playing in their IAPS National Finals in Ipswich today the very best of luck.
Our 1st team remain undefeated in school fixtures and played some great hockey when they recently played in their Regional Tournament in Tonbridge.
All children from the Nursery through to Year 8 have at least one lesson a week in the pool; such a valuable life lesson for all. The swimming squads across the school have been busy working hard in the pool. It is great to see the dedication and determination that some of our Hazlegrove swimmers put into their training. We have enjoyed galas against both Sherborne and Port Regis this term and we look forward to swimming against Taunton School before the end of term.
Good luck to the 11 Hazlegrove athletes that are heading up to Solihull this weekend to compete in the National Biathlon Finals - Hal S, Gray S, Alexandra R, Zinzan S, Imogen W, Skye F, Angus E, Philip M, Josh C, Jake F and Josh S. They will all compete in both a swim and a run against children from across the country.
A big group (48) of Year 3,4 and 5 runners travelled to Taunton School on a very sunny afternoon to take part in a wonderful cross country relay event. We were very proud of all of our athletes who competed so well and returned with the following team medals:

Our Hazlegrove riders were out in force this weekend at the Somerset County NSEA Championships.
This was the qualifying event for the National Championships that take place at Bury Farm in April next year.
Schools from across Somerset were competing to win and take the one qualifying spot for these finals. The top team and the top individual would gain this prestigious accolade. Throughout the day 280 children competed for their schools.
In Class 1 we had a team and an individual entered and after some super riding and very tense waiting, we heard the fantastic news that both our team had won and also our individual. This is the second consecutive year that we have won the Somerset title.
Team – Josh C, Anna I, Skye F, Emily W
Individual – Patrick D-R
In Class 2, again we finished with a clear score and were competing against 25 other schools with no upper age limit. We finished in a very creditable 6th place overall.
Team - Josh C, Patrick D-R, Skye F, Emily W
