The college girls were led home by year 10 student Maddalena Mastrolonardo who won the race.

She was followed in by Natsaha Kent, Olivia Howard, Katy Swales and Emma Raw, all of whom finished in the top ten. Millie Storr and Maddie Metcalf were close behind and stand a chance of achieving district representation.

Nicola Burrells, Amanda Harrison, Alice Hogarth and Emily Botham all finished in the top 30.

The year 11 college netballers played some outstanding netball to win the district tournament, winning all five matches they played.

Morgann Russell captained the side admirably, leading by example. She flitted between the role of centre and goal defence as the tournament progressed, showing what a talented and versatile player she is.

The shooting force led led by Chloe Scarth were outstanding. Esmee Price Coates, Tia Roe-Dryden and Emma Foster hardly missed a shot once they had the ball in the circle. Romany Price Coates dominated the centre court and the tenacious Izzy Moloney let nothing past her as wing defence.

Sophie Brown and Millie Storr’s agile and committed performances meant that the shooters always had great service.

Tilly Ward, the goal keeper was a stalwart in defence being responsible for many vital interceptions.

The girls beat Ryedale, Graham School, Malton, Filey and Scalby on their way to the title and will now represent the district at the county round at Harrogate next month.

The year 10 netballers beat Ryedale in the Scarborough and District cup.

They won 18-11 and will progress to the next round.

The team of 12 hockey players in the year 10 took on Lady Lumleys, away.

The girls dominated the first half and although the second half saw the opposition bring more challenge and place greater demands on the Caedmon defence, the girls secured an 8-0 victory with Alice Hogarth scoring a hat trick.

The team included: Emma Raw, Yasmin Dimbleby, Katy Swales, Tilly Swales, Evie Mason, Alice Hogarth, Lauren Hall.
