NLS Success at the National Squash Championships Plate Finals
On Wednesday 15 March our KS3 A squash team played in the National Squash Championships Plate Finals held at Edgbaston Priory Club.
The team earned their place in the final, after progressing through two earlier rounds of the competition.
Our students played with great enthusiasm and determination where they were successful in beating John Hampden Grammar School’s A team 3-2.
This win meant that the NLS team qualified to place in the top 4.
Our next game was drawn against Reeds School where we unfortunately lost the overall game 2-3. Our final game was then a third place play off against Dame Allan’s School.
With a bronze medal in sights, our students put everything into their games against their respective opponents. Going into our final game it was 2-2 with Tom H and Will E winning their games and Sam C left to play. Against a tough opponent, Sam was successful in winning his first game, lost the second which meant that the final game was all to play for.
After showing great skill, grit and determination, Sam was successful in winning his third game and securing the Bronze medal for North Leamington.
All our students played absolutely fantastically and are a credit to the school.
The PE Department, on behalf of us all at NLS, would like to say a huge congratulations to the students for their success in the tournament: Sam C, Tom H, Will E, Heidi C and Jenson B – Well Done!!!
