Stephanie Swims In The Midlands Regional Championships

Many, many congratulations to Stephanie who swam in the Midlands Regional Swimming Championships at The Alan Higgs Centre in Coventry, over the last two weekends. Stephanie, who trains with Rugby Swimming Club six days a week, swam in the 50m and 100m Backstroke. It will have taken Stephanie such a lot of hard work and dedicated training to achieve the qualifying times and just qualifying for the event is such a super achievement.

In the 50m Backstroke Stephanie finished in 23rd place out of 34 swimmers in a time of 38.70 seconds then in the 100m Backstroke Stephanie pulled herself up the field to finish in 13th place out of 31 swimmers in a time of 1.21.05 minutes.  

We are really proud of you Stephanie - what a fantastic effort!

Bablake & King Henry's Swimming Gala

Year 6 swimmers travelled to King Henry's School on Thursday 5 May for a long awaited and rescheduled gala against Eversfield, Balsall Common and Bablake King Henrys.  All the swimmers were very excited to get into the pool and represent Crescent and they did not disappoint with each student swimming their heart out whilst being encouraged and motivated by their team mates on the side lines.  

"Everybody swam exceptionally well, trying their hardest and doing the school proud. 
With Crescent finishing in 2nd place for the Year 6 competition. "

Swimming Captain, Stephanie has written a full report:

On Thursday the 5th of May, 12 of the year six pupils took part in a swimming gala at KHB against: KHB, Balsall Common and Eversfield Preparatory School.

This gala required four boys and four girls from both year five and six. Unfortunately for us, our year five teams were away (having a brilliant time) on their residential, meaning we were two teams short when it came to overall points.

In the year six girls team we had Katherine, Sophie, Steph, and Harriet. Katherine and Harriet both swam brilliantly, coming close second in the backstroke and freestyle races. Sophie and Steph both won their races, Sophie in the breaststroke and Steph in the butterfly. All outstanding results for the year six girls team.

Our second Year 6 girls representatives pushed themselves to their limits to gain our team even more points, with another impressive result. They really gave it their all, with Liana swimming in the backstroke coming third in a very close heat, and Sophia, Evie and Eva all coming second in the Butterfly, Breaststroke and Freestyle races.

The year six boys races were also incredibly tight heats, showing the fantastic overall performance of the school. Ro swam very well in the Breaststroke, Caspar in the Butterfly both finishing in 2nd place with Sachin in the Freestyle and Faris in the Backstroke coming home home 3rd, all scoring valuable points for the team.

We started and ended the day with the best bit – relays! There is always such a good atmosphere and team spirit, as everyone cheers their teams on throughout. Crescent came second and third in these helping us to place second overall.

A big thank you to everyone who participated in this gala, all of our swimmers did Crescent School proud.

U8 Rounders v Crackley Hall

We had our first rounders match of the season with Crescent Year 3s taking on Crackley Hall. 

Crackley went in to bat first giving Crescent a chance to warm up their fielding skills. Some quick reactions in the field saw a number of Crackley players stumped out and made scoring hard, keeping their rounders to 2 1/2 after 30 balls. 

Crescent went in to bat with some fantastic energy seeing our score quickly move up to to 6 1/2 rounders with Ed, Herbie and Akaal gaining full rounders.  

In the 2nd innings Crackley managed to make more contact with the bat adding 4 rounders to their total and unfortunately Crescent couldn't quite make any of their hits count. 

Final score 6 1/2 - 6 1/2 draw. 

Player of the game Akaal.

U8 Cricket v Crackley Hall

Crescent mixed U8s cricket team started their season with a very dominant display away at Crackley Hall.

Batting first, Crescent reached the super total of 99-1, running and calling well, and hitting three boundaries in the process. Thanks to some very tight bowling and fielding, Crackley could only manage 69-1 in reply, leaving Crescent victors by 30 runs!

Special mentions go to Edward M and Lewis for their excellent bowling (both achieving the only maiden overs of the match) and to Shaylan and Max T for getting our innings off to a flying start with the bat.

Well done to the whole team!
