County League Plate Final
Congratulations to our athletes who also competed in the County League Plate Final this week. The plate final was for schools who placed 5th-8th in the county throughout the athletics league this summer.

Special mention to the following girls who won their events:
Martha Ker – 800m Beth, Martha, Alice & Ella – 4x100m Relay Scarlett Victory – Hurdles
Great work girls especially against some really tough competition!!
Well done to the girls who competed in the recent Nicola Mabbit Tennis Tournament at Queenswood. Presdales were represented at U13s, U14s and U16s after qualifying as District Champions in these age groups.
The girls played some magnificent tennis throughout the afternoon. Lots of super-close games that were decided on the smallest of margins.
The U13s finished 6th overall against some strong competition but they narrowly missed out in a number of their games.
The U14s finished 4th overall, again suffering a number of narrow defeats which went down to the wire with deciding game tiebreaks!
The U16s finished as deserved Winners losing only one game from the 8 matches played and dominating most of their matches with some fantastic tennis.
The entire team contributed and it’s difficult to pick anyone out specifically, however the Star Players were as follows:-
U13s – Ava McManus U14s – Chloe Pearce U16s – Ellen Beesley
Well done to all of the girls. Another example of the depth of sporting ability across multiple sports at Presdales!
Massive congratulations to the Year 8 rounders team who remain undefeated and were crowned district champions last week! Excellent batting, fielding and team work from all of the girls! Star player was Amy Little for her excellent catches and fielding on second post!
