School Games Finals

Four teams from Uppingham Community College qualified for this year Leicestershire and Rutland School Games Finals which took place this week at Loughborough University.  The School Games is where finalists from each of the 10 regions gather to compete in a range of sports.  The four UCC teams that qualified to represent Rutland at these finals were:

  • Year 7 Netball Team
  • Year 11 Indoor Rowing Team
  • Key Stage 4 Swimming Team
  • Wheelchair Basketball Team

Teams gathered for an opening ceremony in the morning before dispersing across the University campus to take part in each of their events. The Netball and Basketball teams played in a league format with the Rowers and Swimmers competing in individual and team races.  All the UCC teams competed well with the Rowing and Wheelchair Basketball teams finishing runners up in their competitions and picking up silver medals (pictured).  Thank you to all the students and staff that represented Rutland at this fantastic event.
