Once again Haygrove School featured in the Sedgemoor District Schools Rugby finals and went on to claim two of the three trophies up for grabs. The Year 9 and Year 11 squad met their opponents at the North Petherton Rugby Club ground where the family and friends who gathered to watch were treated to two superb games. The Year 9 contest was between Haygrove and Robert Blake Science College and whilst the latter fought hard, the Haygrove boys dominated and the match ended 36 - 10.
The Year 11 teams that faced each other under the floodlights were old foes! The lads from Haygrove have met the Brymore squad on the rugby field many times over the last few years, with both sides experience success and defeat. On this crucial occasion, which is likely to be the last time they meet as school-boy rugby players, it was Haygrove who made the most tries and conversions and who walked away with the coveted Sedgemoor Schools Cup. The final score was 27 - 3
The Haygrove Year 7 and Year 8 squads competed in friendly games with their Brymore (Year 7 and Year 8) and Chilton Trinity (Year 8) contemporaries, and all the players gave a glimpse of how their rugby might evolve over the coming years. Both year groups played excellently, clearly showing their understanding of the game, their positive attitude and their resilience and determination to succeed.
