Another trophy for Blackhorse
Published on: 31 Oct 2013
BLACKHORSE Primary School is keeping up its sporting prowess – its trophy haul now stands at 29 in two years.
These have been achieved in 12 sports and include three regional sports awards.
Last month the school won the South West Sports Award for Contribution to Sport in Education ast the West of England Sport Trust ceremony hosted by the Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson.
It was also runner-up in the Olympic Legacy category.
Blackhorse won its first football trophy in more than 20 years when the school’s team were crowned champions of this year’s county football tournament, in which more than 30 schools competed.
Blackhorse won the group stage with victories in games against Christ Church Hanhan, Charborough Road, Crossways, Stoke Lodge and St Anne’s. After a 5-1 win in the quarter final over Hanham Abbots, the team beat St Anne’s in the semi final. The hard-fought final against local rivals Mangotsfield ended 1-0.
