County Cross-Country Championships, Basingstoke


On Thursday the 7th March one of our year 6 boys represented Eastleigh and Winchester District at the County Cross-Country Championships in Basingstoke. This was a huge achievement as he had qualified from two previous rounds and was one of only two boys from the Eastleigh area. The race was a very muddy and windy 1.8km with over 160 runners! He came 47th and his position contributed towards Eastleigh and Winchester District winning the team event.


We are very proud indeed!


Sparsholt Tag Rugby Festival, WRC - Thursday 21st March 2019


On Thursday we took a team to the annual Sparsholt Tag Rugby Festival which was held at Winchester Rugby Club. It was a huge event with 16 other schools attending from the Winchester and Eastleigh District. We played 9 games and won 6 of them, scoring 23 tries in total! The team organised themselves brilliantly, kept their attacking/defensive lines, tagged well and executed some amazing tries. In true Merdon spirit they encouraged each other and came away with a team award for the 'loudest support team!' for which each player won a T-shirt.
