Artistic Swimming 

Last weekend, Hannah competed in the South West Artistic Swimming Regional Age Group Competition 2022 in Cheltenham which was the first live competition in two years.Hannah won 3 gold medals and 1 cup in the 12 & Under age category for Figures, Solo and Team events.The next competition she is working towards is the National Age Group Competition which is in Gloucester on 2nd/3rd of April 2022.This is when Hannah will have to compete with the best swimmers from all over the UK.Well done, Hannah, and good luck in April! 

Hockey 

For our hockey teams the week started with the U14 Regional tournament and despite a number of impressive wins, they just missed out on the semi-finals,following defeat in their final pool game. The next day, the 1st XI had an even more agonising defeat in the last 16 of the National Cup against Magdalen College, Oxford. Having fought back bravely to force a 3-3 draw, they lost on penalty strokes to end their excellent run in the competition.There was more success last Saturday, however, as Kingswood did notlose a match in the block fixture against Cheltenham College. Ted, Charlie, Sam and Jack were all particularly impressive for their respective teams. Well done to all the boys who competed so well lastweek and thanks must go to all the staff that helped with fixtures.Finally, the Hockey club would like to make another Full Colours award to the goalkeeper, Tom. Like Rob, Tom has represented the 1st XI since Year 10 and in that time, has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers on the circuit. He has been part of two sides that have made it to the latter stages of the National Cup and has made a number of stunning saves along the way.  

Rugby 

In the four Rugby 7s tournaments that took place last week, the U18s won the Trophy competition at Colston’s with victory over Exeter School. The U16s progressed to the final of the main competition,having topped their group which included Cheltenham College, Dean Close, King Edward’s and Bristol Grammar School. After dominating the final against Millfield, they lost with the last play of the game to finish as runners-up. The U15s started well at the Millfield tournament, with two wins over the hosts and a hard-fought draw against a strong Sherborne team before defeat against Clifton College and Llandaff Cathedral School. The U14s reached the semi-finals of the Sherborne tournament before losing narrowly to Millfield. 

Netball

Last Saturday, the Netball Club had a very competitive and physical block fixture against Dauntsey’s. Overall, Dauntsey’s won the block but there were a number of close matches which could have gone either way. In these matches, Kingswood had the possession but,at times, we struggled to convert and Dauntsey’s were better at the rebound. The U13Bs and Ds both drew with Emily and Elowen being instrumental in defence. The U13Cs continue their unbeaten season with Beth and Verity reading the game well and Florence being one of the top goal scorers this season -a fantastic 19-11 win. Team of the week are the U14As who outplayed Dauntsey’s in all areas of the court. The defence were outstanding,producing many turnovers and getting a comfortable 19-4 lead by half time. The shooters Connie  and Asia were greatunder the post. A well-deserved 33-14 win. Finally, the U14C, D and E teams all played KES in the week and the standoutplayers were Chrissie, Sophia and Charlotte for their respective teams.
