Sporting Rivalry

Sporting Rivalry

The last week of the Autumn Term saw a large number of house events taking place and with it the good natured, but razor sharp, rivalry that makes the house competition such a fundamental part of Caterham School. Interhouse netball on Saturday saw a very tightly fought tournament with Aldercombe victorious, but only beating Lewisham on goal difference. 

There was also the return of House Swimming after a two year break and the girls were in the pool first. Harestone won the senior competition with Lewisham picking up both the inter and junior elements. Of particular note, Mr Perfect highlighted the following: Ava K (Lewisham) set a new house record in the Senior 50m Breaststroke. Lewisham juniors set a new house record in the Medley Relay (Mia K, Sophie S, Hannah K & Lucy L)  

The boys’ competition followed and despite pre-match nerves from Mr Mills, the boarders continued their winning streak in the senior competition. Harestone won the inters and tied with Ridgefield for the junior number one spot. Mr Perfect’s performances of note were: Caiden H (Underwood) set a new house record in the Senior 50m Backstroke, Jae C (Ridgefield) set a new house record in the Senior 50m Butterfly, Ethan K (Lewisham) set a new house record in the Inters 25m Breaststroke and Jack W (Underwood) set a new house record in the Inters 25m Freestyle. 

A big thanks to all the staff who made these events happen and a big thanks to the pupils whose efforts and performances make house events the success they always are.
