1sts Fine Farewell Win at National Schools Lacrosse

1sts Fine Farewell Win at National Schools Lacrosse

Last weekend saw the return of the annual National Schools lacrosse event. This is one of the most exciting weekends for school girl lacrosse and it did not disappoint. We saw the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, U15A, U14A and U13A teams all take part in the tournament, with the U15Bs being delayed until next Tuesday. 

The 1sts won division 1 and had a brilliant send off to the Upper Sixth Form pupils who gave out their team awards through the style of a rap. A huge thank you to all of the Upper Sixth players and parents who have supported the girls through their seven years of lacrosse. You will be greatly missed!

The 2nd team made it all the way to the Division 2 semi-finals which is a phenomenal achievement. They hustled all the way through and showed grit and determination on and off the pitch. 

The 3rds narrowly lost out on make it to the quarter finals of the competition, however, played a brilliant day of lacrosse and had great fun doing so. 

The U15As, having been winners of the championships last year went through to the semi finals, where they narrowly lost to St. Swithuns’, who went on to win the competition, 3-2 in the last 30 seconds of the game. The girls played tenaciously on the pitch and were a huge credit to themselves throughout the day. Not a bad history of semi-finals, winners and semi-finals of the National Schools competition.

Unfortunately, due to the torrential rain that we saw on Tuesday, the U14s and U13s tournament was cut short, meaning they both narrowly missed out on a place in the quarter finals. However, a great team performance with a draw to Putney High school in their last game. 

A huge well done to all pupils involved, a brilliant four days of lacrosse and fun had by all!
