Another tournament, another trophy...

After missing out by half a point in 2005, and by one missed basket in 2006, one of our entries at Superteams finally came home with the title.

Okay, strictly speaking, Herts Superteams isn't actually a rugby tournament. And strictly speaking half the winning team were, well, male (but the rules do say that teams have to be mixed). And strictly speaking Nichola and Mel probably won't be playing next year - but they were team and club members this year, and were entered under the club's banner (well, more or less) so I reckon it counts. It was actually quite an impressive all-round performance with wins in at least four events - two year's experience of the tournament being an important factor.

The other U17 entry - including Hayley, Carla and Sasha - missed out on third place by a single point, having achieved a maximum score with the joker on the bungee run and also winning the rodeo bull - but missed out on points elsewhere.

The U16 team lead by Jess (and shown here apparently playing four-a-side badminton) were more consistent and would have stolen a place had they not played their joker on hockey - and made a complete pig's ear of the event.

In the U14 competition we saw the return of six of the girls from the North Herts tag team, and the younger they were the better they did. Hayley A's U14 combination only scored in hockey - but had the most memorable moment of the afternoon when Kieron managed to stay on the bull for the full minute.

A U12 team with three of the older Year 6 girls form the tag scored in two events - basketball and bungee run - but otherwise missed out, but the youngest team lead by Kate Summerfield - effectively a U11 team - did well scoring in several events, especially those that majored in skill rather than strength. Unfortunately there were a few of the latter where they failed to score. And it was great to see the tag girls again - hopefully the core of Heather's U12 district team next season.

More photos here or slideshow here... So now its just the presentation on Friday and finally the 2006/7 season will be at an end...
