LVC has a strong tradition of school sport. Students are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular sporting activities at lunchtime and after school. Fixtures against other schools take place most Wednesday evenings, and LVC teams also take part in district and county tournaments ranging from cross-country to girls' cricket and indoor rowing. A number of students have represented the county or competed at regional and national level.
Both the Year 10 and 11 boy’s football teams reached the District Finals held at Cambridge United on Tuesday 7th May. The Year 10s battled well against St Bede’s, taking the lead twice but were pinned back both times before conceding a third goal which rocked them. Before they had time to settle their nerves unfortunately they conceded a fourth. All the boys played well, showing a good level of maturity throughout. The Year 11s allowed Bottisham Village College to take the lead early on with a lapse in concentration. This was the wake-up call that was needed which resulted in Ben scoring a superb individual equaliser. At the beginning of the second half Bottisham came out on top but the boys defended resiliently and caught them on the counter to go 3-1 ahead which resulted in Bottisham being left deflated and allowed LVC to score a fourth. All the boys played their part in defending brilliantly and held out for a 4-3 win. A fantastic way for them to end their school footballing career together.
The Year 10 boys followed in the footsteps of last year's Year 11s by defeating Sawston 3-2 in the final at Cambridge United on Tuesday 2nd May. The game was even throughout, with both teams very well organised. LVC kept their heads, and with 5 minutes remaining they scored the winning goal. This sent the supporting fans and home dugout into wild celebrations. LVC managed to hold on, which sparked jubilant scenes at the final whistle.
The Under 16 Girl's became District Basketball Champions in February.
After a nail biting 3-2 game against Sawston at Cambridge United on Monday 8th May 2017, the Year 11s ended up victorious in the Cup Final. From the start, the boys reacted positively, pressing high up the pitch and putting pressure onto their back four which forced the Sawston team to make mistakes. This LVC team is the most talented bunch of lads that I have ever coached and they have all worked extremely hard to reach the final. All the boys deserve a special mention for their work ethic and attitude. Thank you to all those that came along and cheered the boys on. I know that this meant a lot to them.
