A quick reminder
The weather is forecast to be cold for the foreseeable future. We would like to thank students for being so cooperative during these cold spells but strongly advise them to bring their PE jumper as many students are not. We would also like to remind them that they can wear black or blue base layers and tracksuit bottoms.

Year 8 Basketball V University Academy Holbeach
The year 8 basketball team travelled to UAH on 27 January for their second fixture of the season. After arriving and a quick team talk the game tipped off. Deeping came out of the blocks the strongest, wanting to put their defeat in the first game behind them. The first quarter was dominated by Deeping amassing a 6 point lead; all six points going to Louis Towers who had a great game. It was the same theme for the rest of the match with Deeping dominating possession and scoring at regular intervals to keep the pressure on UAH. The beginning of the fourth quarter saw Deeping leading 12-1. However, an almighty comeback by UAH saw them crawl back to a 12-9 deficit. Luckily for us time was on our side and the game finished 12-9.
Team - Louis Towers, Oscar Benson, Jamie Johnstone, Harry Harman, Bradley Bowering, Rory White

County Cross Country
County Cross Country took place on the coldest day of the year at Sleaford rugby club. Nineteen students were selected to run for South Lincolnshire by finishing in the top 20 at the County Championships.
Of the nineteen students fifteen were able to run for South Lincolnshire at the Counties and all put in fantastic performances. It is a great achievement to be selected for a South Lincolnshire and they should be very proud of their achievements. Many students were the youngest in their age group so it was great experience for them; they learnt a lot and it will help them next year.
Well done to Austin Herbert and Georgia Gibbs who qualified for the Lincolnshire team and will represent them at the Anglian and National Championships - we wish them the best of luck.
Hannah Knight, Eden Oldfield, Oli Welch, Jack Weddup, Jasmine Oldfield and Sophie Partner are all reserves.

District Swimming Gala
Deeping School hosted the District Swimming Gala for nine schools within the partnership. It was a fantastic morning with some very close competition. The girls dominated winning all age groups. The year 7 girls: Hannah Knight, Lucy Smith, Lorna McGill and Lexi Cooper won the Medley relay.
In the year 8/9 girls competition Emily McCann and Chloe Jones won their individual events as did Berri Harrison and Beth Wilde in the year 10/11 girls. There was some really strong competition in the boy’s events. The year 7’s finished 4th , year 8/9’s were 2nd and the year 10/11’s were 3rd. Individual events were won by Sydney Witt, Louis Metselaar and Ben Gregson.
I would like to thank all teachers, and year 10 and 12 students who helped to run the gala so smoothly.

Year 9 Netball v Bourne Academy – 29/01/2015
Both teams were determined to win in freezing conditions. Earlier in the day snow had fallen but not settled. The sun was now shining but the temperature had not risen. The year 9 team started strongly gaining a three goal advantage. In the second quarter they pulled away to lead by 6-0. Both defence and attack playing well throughout the game extending the lead to 9-0 by the end of the third quarter. In the final quarter of the game, Bourne scored one goal making the final score 9-1. Well done girls, your training and commitment is definitely paying off!
Squad: Shanice Forster, Leah Forster, Lauren Turner, Steph Watkinson, Caitlin Back, Chloe Squires, Beth Edmonds, Imogen Morgan.

Year 11 Netball v Bourne Academy – 29/01/2015
Deeping started the game well despite the freezing conditions. Bourne also made a good start to the game with some excellent passing along the court. The action was very much end to end but the first quarter ended with Bourne leading 4-2. The temperature dropped further, making it difficult for both teams. Bourne maintained a two goal lead by the end of the second quarter – 7-5.
During the third quarter Bella Winn lost her footing and fell to the ground, injuring her wrist and could take no further part in the game. Luckily the year 9 team had a spare player so Imogen Morgan replaced Bella and then in the fourth quarter, Lauren Turner. Deeping began to lose their momentum and were simply overpowered by Bourne’s strong attacking force. The game ended 13-6 in Bourne’s favour. A really good game by all the girls taking part, well done.
Squad: Connie Lynch, Molly Clayton, Bella Winn, Bea Ironside, Louise Sturman, Heather Buttery, Mollie Gillett.

Year 9 football fixture vs Hampton College
The first fixture in 2015 on 29 January for the year 9 squad couldn’t have presented us with more pleasant weather conditions! A strong wind, rain, hail and a downpour of snow in the space of one hour made it an uphill task from the start. Unfortunately, with a few key players missing due to injury, the Deeping school were forced to make some changes. Archie Adams played in goal and Nils Hagget-King was called up last minute to fill in, and both did extremely well in such difficult conditions.
The game kicked off and immediately Hampton piled on the pressure with the wind and snow at their backs it seemed a very difficult task for the Deeping eleven to get out of their half. As the game progressed, Hampton had two chances and scored both, leaving the Deeping side feeling slightly dejected after playing so well to hold on.
After the break the thick snow was still coming down making playing conditions worse. The Deeping team came out a different team the second half and scored early to make it 2-1. They piled on the pressure but just couldn’t find the equalising goal. A defeat but a lot of positives to take from the game. Well done lads!
