Trinity's handball teams qualified to play in the national finals at Worcester Arena on June 11th.
The U13 boys and U15 girls teams had previously progressed to the Midlands finals, held here in Nottingham, where they both played fantastically to progress to the national finals.
This was the second year running for the girls and hopes were high after some impressive play this year. Although the girls went ahead in four out of six games, the competition was tough and they were unlucky to win only their last game and finish 6th overall. This is still a huge achievement, with over 2000 schools across the country entering the competition!
The boys relished their first chance in the national finals after narrowly missing out last year. Despite being plagued with injury, the team gave a great account of themselves. It was agonising to watch a couple of matches lost in the very final few seconds of the game!
Both teams should be incredibly proud of their achievements and all the players were a real credit to the school.
Three of the girls were chosen to attend the Midlands Regional Academy. The academy is a monthly programme, running alongside the clubs for the best players from a region. It provides more specialised coaching, better opposition and the opportunity to be followed closely by the National U16 Academy coaches. One of the girls has also gone one stage further and is now part of the National Academy!
