13/05/2024 Sports News

Year 7 impress at Wensleydale RUFC's first Rugby 7s tournament.

The newly launched Year 7 Rugby 7s tournament at Wensleydale RUFC proved a resounding success, with both the boys' and girls' teams from Risedale School delivering stellar performances.

The girls kicked off their day with a game against The Wensleydale School. While the first half saw them challenged by a strong Wensleydale team, the Risedale girls displayed remarkable adaptability. After familiarising themselves with the fast-paced nature of 7s, they dominated the second half with impressive teamwork and athleticism.

The boys also embraced the new format, participating in two matches against formidable opponents. Their third game took a unique turn, with Risedale and Richmond players joining forces to support their knowledge, foster sportsmanship and further develop their understanding of the game.

"I was incredibly proud of our Year 7 teams," said PE Teacher Mr Lawson. "They were absolutely brilliant! They displayed exceptional sportsmanship throughout the tournament and thoroughly enjoyed every match. They are a true credit to themselves and the school. Well done everyone!"
