ST MARY'S Chiswick Primary School had double cause for celebration this week.
They have been crowned queens of Hounslow in both netball and seven-a-side football following a series of tournaments for girls.
First up was the HI-5 netball tournament at Heathland School last Tuesday, in which St Mary's Chiswick and St Mary's Isleworth came top of their groups and did battle for the borough title.
And it was the Chiswick school which won the battle of the two St Mary's 6-0 to advance to the West London Finals at Grasshoppers RFC on March 30.
Then, two days later, St Mary's beat off competition from Oriel, Beavers, St Lawrence and Victoria schools to win the seven-a-side football tournament at Feltham Community College.
Before the tournament the girls, from years five and six in their respective schools, received coaching from Sport Impact Hounslow coaches, learning dribbling, shooting and passing as well as fun, enjoyment and teamwork.
Following a round-robin tournament of 10-minute matches, St Mary's came out on top, closely followed by Beavers in second place.
Competition manager Louise Meadows said: "The standard of football was fantastic and the coaching was inspirational to watch, as the girls worked together with other pupils from across the borough, some of whom they had never met before.
"And in the netball, the level of skill and positive attitude was fantastic, despite the bitterly cold and windy conditions.
"Each team put their utmost into every match, while the help with scoring and officiating by the young leaders from Heathland made the day a success."
