After the mid of Term 2, classes from the Primary and Secondary sections geared up for the internally organized inter-class football tournament.

The Primary tournament was held in the afternoon break and The Secondary tournament in the evening after class.

The boys displayed skill, team strategy, intensity and discipline as each class put out it’s best players to contest for the trophies.

For the Primary Section the Standard 8s were the winners with Grade 6s emerging runners up.

For the Secondary Section the Form 3A were champs in a Form 3 finals derby which saw 3 Alpha scoop the runners up slot.

We hope for a good football season in Term 3 as school teams are picked for the International Schools Games.

What an Athletic day!

Unlike all other seasons, this season saw the start of competitive rugby in Grade 7s(Under 13 years). This was a step forward by the administration to get the game into the young lads.

The U13s were not able to participate in any tournament but they had a friendly triangular tournament which featured RVA and Cavina School. It was a great afternoon to see the young players new in the game putting their best foot forward to win against both schools.

On a different scene; the Under 15 years (Form Ones) also had their share of introduction to the game. They had a chance of participating in the International schools league tournament. They started off by playing friendlies which they lost. At some point at the start of the season one would have easily gotten discouraged if there was need to have Form Ones play but as they played more games they were able to become better and display good quality rugby. In the ultimate Under 15s Tournament at RVA they became second losing the the defending champions St. Andrews School Turi by a 2 point margin in the finals.

For the Under 16 years (Form 2s) the boys participated in the Damu Changa league and Blackrock 10s tournament. These leagues exposed them to the game as they only had a chance to play 1 game in their Form 1 year. In the leagues they got ejected in the group stages and Quarter finals respectively. They displayed hope for the future of the game in the school!

For the seniors (Form 3s and Form 4s) the team had mixed fortune as the Team A 7s started off the season by winning Gold in the annual Hillcrest U19s 7s aside tournament. The team A also featured in the Nairobi County 15s, Prescott Cup 15s and Blackrock 10s tournament. In all the 3 tournaments they recorded minor losses and got ejected in Quarter finals, Group Stages and Quarter Finals respectively.

With all this action the school rugby team has a bright future worth looking forward to!

On Saturday 3rd June the Strathmore School rugby Teams A and B got an invitation to the annual Saint Marys School Blackrock Rugby Tournament. This year the tournament was setup to be a 10s Tournament.

Having been runners-up in last year’s 7s tournament the team was positive and hopeful for this year’s 10s tournament.

Both Teams A and B were able to qualify for the main cup quarterfinals.

Team A lost in the quarter finals against a well oiled Kitondo High School while Team B lost to UpperHill A after a gallant fight.

The tournament Finalists were RVA A and Rosslyn Academy. Rosslyn emerge winners this year.

We hope for the best to the team as they take-on the Term 2 rugby season.
