The football season started for St Pius X last night with the Year 8 and Year 10's taking on Thrybergh Academy. The Year 10's managed to record a 6-0 victory and the Year 8's contributed to a see-saw game with the lead changing hands on a number of occasions, finally ending 5-5. Well played St Pius X.
Please see the attached timetable of football fixtures for 2018/2019
The Cricket season is underway after the poor weather with both the Y8 and Y10 teams competing in cup fixtures this week.
The Y8's hosted Rawmarsh and unfortunately came out second best in a competitive game. There was a great effort from all players with some playing their first ever game of cricket, and a notable contributions from Rocco Campagna (7W) and William Pleasants (8L) with both the bat and ball.
The Y10's travelled to Winterhill with a depleted team and despite a great effort from those players who made the trip they failed to progress to the next round.

MAX PEART -WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, FLORIDA
Max Peart (7 Walsingham) attended the World Championships in Florida last week representing Team England in Multi Skilled Martial Arts.
Max has been doing Martial Arts since he was 5 and has been a Black Belt since he was 10. He is now training for his 2nd Dan which he should receive in December and also is a Junior Instructor at his Martial Arts school in Balby, Doncaster.
In his forms routine he came 6th out of 12, which is a great achievement.
Hopefully he will get the chance to qualify to be on the world’s stage next year.
He has had an amazing year with his martial arts and Max’s parents would like to thank Saint Pius for allowing him the time off to attend this amazing event.
