In December a team from Sycamores Year 3 & 4 and Redwoods Year 5 & 6 took part in the first tournament of the Teign Inter Valley 2018/19 League.
Last year, the honour of representing Bearnes fell to our Redwoods, however after a successful year Bearnes would be joining the Year 3 & 4 tournament meaning that the children at Bearnes would have even greater access to sporting opportunities.
Both of our teams performed incredibly against Hennock and Stokenteignhead with Stokenteignhead fielding 2 separate teams.
Our Sycamores and Redwoods teams’ represented our school incredibly well demonstrating great team work, resilience and determination.
The Sycamores team comprising of; Kesia, Olivia, Dylan, Evan, Wednesday and Oscar worked fantastically well winning 3 out of their 5 games losing, only, to our friends and neighbours Hennock!
Miss Summerhayes said they all worked incredibly hard! Special mention must go to Olivia who had a stand out performance being the only person left in on 3 separate occasions and against all the odds managed to get Bearnes back into the game! Thanks to Olivia’s and the whole team’s efforts Bearnes came away in 2nd place overall! Excellent effort!
Our Redwoods team were also very impressive. The team of Paul, Jacob, Charlotte, Kayden, Connor, Oliwia and Lily were spectacular throughout they worked incredibly well together and came away in 3rd position!
Mrs Fraser was incredibly impressed with the teams efforts and said that Connor made some spectacular catches keeping Bearnes in the match and Kayden had some incredibly powerful throws.
Well Done to Bearnes!
