Congratulations to this month’s Sports Players of the Month for April. The Sports Department has elected to recognise not two, but three, students this month for their approach to sport at Trinity, as the vote was tied. The Sportsmen of the month for April are Second Year student Matthew Jacques and Third Year student Danny Keenan. Lower Sixth student Kayla Victor was unanimously voted for as Sportswoman of the month.
Mr Kench, Director of Sport, explains why each student has been recognised this month:
“Matthew Jacques is the definitive Trinity Sportsman, his multi-sport involvement is extraordinary. In Cricket, he is one of the standout performers for the U13A team. Towards the end of last term, he played a pivotal role in the U13 Hockey team that won the National Plate final. In Football he worked tirelessly for the U13A team. In Rugby and Rugby 7s he is always one of the hardest working players representing the A team throughout. These achievements however are not why he has won the award. What impressed staff most about Matthew has been his positive attitude and proactive nature to getting better and the way he acts with his teammates, encouraging and supporting them, is exemplary.
“Danny Keenan has made a fantastic start to this Cricket term where he is one of the standout players in the U14 team, earning him a call-up to represent the U15 team in their cup squad. This is clearly down to his hard work in the winter programme, translating into a confident technique and approach. In Football, he worked tirelessly in the outstanding team that made the ESFA National Semi Final. In Hockey, he again was a key player for the highly successful U14A team. Finally, his attitude and team approach to Rugby season was fantastic, where he is one of the most well-liked and respected members of the U14B team.
“Kayla Victor has been awarded Sportswoman of the month for April. Kayla’s performances for the school in Netball have been to an incredibly high level. She was one of the standout performers in the National Finals and, outside of school, she works incredibly hard within the London Pulse Netball Pathway. In A Level PE, Kayla shows a real passion for Sports Science and is an outstanding contributor to class discussion and debate. It has also been incredibly pleasing to see Kayla’s willingness to try new sports. Last term that was Rugby 7s and this term it has been Cricket. In both sports she is showing real potential. Well done Kayla on a superb year in sport!”
