The LPH U11 rugby team is celebrating victory in the Oakwood Sevens tournament, which took place on Wednesday 1 March.
The competition was fierce, with large schools such as Brighton College and Portsmouth Grammar Schools represented. Winning all of their group games against Brambletye, Oakwood and Ryde allowed the boys to qualify for the final, in which they faced a committed Pennthorpe side who fought to the very end. There was huge excitement and great pride when the game finished as a 15–10 victory. The boys' success has been founded upon physical commitment, a range of attacking options and a strong team spirit, and they received many positive comments about the rugby on display. The victory was celebrated on Friday's assembly with medals presented by Mr Peters, who has coached the team for the last three seasons, and with a fantastic dinner organised by our kind parents.
