The Year 9 football team were knocked out of the county cup in the quarter final stage after a 3-1 loss to Buckswood School. The game was played in difficult conditions and could have gone either way. Durrington goal scorer and man of the match was Levi Martin.

The Year 8 basketball team continued their unbeaten run with a 28 – 8 win against Sion and a 22 – 2 win against Chatsmore. The boys scored some excellent baskets catching the opposition out with their fast break. There was an excellent debut from Max Brotherton and Jonathan Rees was man of the match.

The district badminton competition was held at Chatsmore last Tuesday. Durrington entered 4 teams who all performed admirably. The KS4 boys and girls teams both came second in their groups. Both the KS3 boys and girls team won their groups and now go through to the county finals held in Haywards Heath next month. Congratulations to all who played, in particular – Scott Haysom, James Burry, Alyx Maskell and Chloe Jones.

The county cross country championships took place at Waterhall in Brighton last week, we took 4 full teams and all runners ran exceptionally well. Luke Ellard was runner of the day and finished fourth in his race meaning he will now go on to the National Championship to represent Sussex in April.

The year 11 boys basketball team had three fixtures last week, the boys played some phenomenal basketball and won all 3 games, 39-36 against St Andrews, 36-4 against Steyning and 73-21 against Shoreham Academy. MVP’s were Jonah Gilbert, Lucas Bitton and Leo Josifovski.
