Netball Match Against Winterhill

The girls Netball fixtures got underway last night with a home fixture against Winterhill for Years 8 & 9.

Our Year 9 Team came up against an extremely strong Winterhill side (who made the Finals last year) but this did not prevent them from putting up a competitive fight and gave them the opportunity to show off their enthusiastic & positive ethos. Special mention goes to Sandrine, Amelia & Ellie Bullen who competed in their first ever Netball Match for Clifton and who have slotted straight into this friendly and supportive Team.
The Year 8 Team continued to build on the success of last year and ensured a resounding 13-3 victory. All the girls played brilliantly, but special mention must go to Ellie Oates & Sathurja who’s defensive skills, in their first ever game, kept the opposition to only 3 goals. As for their captain; Qirath, she played in a new position of GA and after spending all summer practicing her Shooting, her hard work certainly paid off and contributed massively to the extremely positive scoreline.

Well done to all of the girls who took part!

The pupils were a true credit to school and for the second year running we had the biggest turn out from the local schools!
Year 7 boys and girls lead the way with some great performances from Mitchell and Billie-Jo coming in the top ten and Boris showing determination by pulling up the rear and his crossing line comment of ‘never again I am shattered’ to then ask where we are next week!
Year 8 and Year 9 boys and girl responded well to a tough field and some tactics of tripping them over on the homeward stretch!
Year 10 and 11 girls came in strong with Tiegan and Shantel coming in the top ten in a tough field of runners.
Well done to all of the runners for their hard work and determination!

Clifton Athletics Team Visit Wath

Last night we took our Athletics teams to Wath for a fixture involving all the major schools in Rotherham. Once more we were well represented at Year 7 and 8 and students who attended had a really nice evening.

A special shout out to Ben Robinson and Reece Seymour. Neither boy has represented our school this year and until I had a polite word with them during period 4 this afternoon neither were intending on changing this.

Both decided that they would come and have a go. They both entered the javelin with Reece finishing a credible 5th place and Ben an impressive 3rd. This encouraged both to have a go at the Discus. This time Ben was 3rd and Reece won the event. I really think this will do both boys confidence a lot of good so please make a fuss of them when you see them.

We had some other strong performances and it was nice to see the gap is closing in terms of the level of competition that our pupils are now starting to put up against other schools. We are not there yet but we are moving in the right direction.

Chad and Alex Visit Doncaster Athletic Club

Mr Griffin and Miss Harp visited Doncaster Athletic Club with Chad and Alex for the South Yorkshire Athletic Championships. The event was being used by many runners as a qualifier for English Schools and a time trial for potential GB entry so the talent was very high.

Alex made the final of the 1500m and did really well in a time of just under 6 minutes in a field of 13 runners. He showed determination and true spirit to keen going as the other athletes increased their lead away from him.
Chad ran in the 200m heats but sadly didn’t make the final but this was not the case for the 100m where due to true commitment right until the line, he secured the final place on offer in the final! He really did give his all and is the 9th fastest 100m runner in South Yorkshire. He was so thrilled to be in the final and we witnessed true sportsmanship by him making sure he shook hands with all runners.
Both boys were a credit to us as was a long day for them and they showed great spirit to cheer on others and not complain about the weather.

Y7 Cricket Vs Rawmarsh

Another fantastic performance from Y7 cricket team and a convincing win over Rawmarsh.
We were asked to bowl first and an amazing start where we took 3 wickets from the first 5 bowls from Kashif Hussain. Our superb bowling continued and Rawmarsh were 4 wickets down for 0 runs after 2 overs. We continued our dominance throughout our bowling restricting Rawmarsh to 56/8.
Using a total of 8 bowlers in total who all bowled brilliantly.
We started batting confidently with Omar and Zak hitting 4s. At 32/0 Zak retired after hitting 12 runs. Omar continued the onslaught hitting six 4s in hit dominating knock of 28 runs. Rawmarsh pulled it back with a couple of wickets but the result was never in doubt as we hit the winning runs with 3 overs to spare. The man of the match was Omar with his superb batting display.
The lads are progressing well and have the making of a really good team.
