LondonSchool Games Spring Finals 201 7

Wandsworth's Volleyball teams struck double gold in the London School Games Volleyball Final held at the University of East London Sportsdock. Both the girls team from Graveney and the boys from Ernest Bevin beat off the challenges from the rest of London schools to pick up the coverted titles of London Champions.

It's continiues a fantastic run of victories in volleyball, where Wandsworth schools have dominated the event. It is the fifth time in 6 years that Ernest Bevin have won gold in this event. Wandsworth schools have also won the girls event 4 times, with Graveney following up Putney High's win last year!

In addition, to the onfield excellents, 20 sports leaders from Graveney also did a fantastic job officiated and refereeing all the matches on the day. The London Youth Games orhganises gave very high praise to the leaders who made up the LYG Games Force.

Following up on last years fantastic performance by Wandsworth primary schools in the London School Games Spring finals was always going to prove difficult. Wiith all 6 schools finishing in the top five positions out of a possible 32 London boroughs was a hard act to follow.

But as you can see from the results below, the primary schools had mixed fortunes in this year's final.

There was a fantastic bronze medal in the Tag Rugby, where Northwood Schools won the majority of their matches and much admiration for their free flowing rugby from rugby league organisers. Ravenstone also performed excellently in a very competitive sportshall athletics competition finishing in 5th position.

Honeywell, The Roche, St Michael's also represented the borough of Wandsworth in great style and all had a fabulous day at the biggest schools competition in Europe.

In the secondary schools competitions, following on from the successs in the volleyball, Graveney boys came 5th in the badminton and Putney High 13th in Year 7 Netball.

Congratulations to everyone involved in representing Wandsworth at the finals.
