Lacrosse: Strong performances by the senior and junior teams

Monday 13 October 2014

The senior girls’ lacrosse 1st XII played at the U19 Northern Schools’ Tournament at Queen Margaret’s School, York on Saturday 11th October. Despite being one player down, the girls won three out of seven of their games. The remaining four games were close matches that could have gone either way.

This is a brand new team that includes both novice and more experienced players. The students and coaches were delighted with the outcome of their first tournament and are very optimistic about future matches.

Good luck to the five senior players (Abby Attenborough, Laura Cooke, Antonia Wordie, Olivia Papaioannou and Georgia Bruce) who will be participating in the county trials at Moreton Hall on Wednesday 15th October. If chosen, the girls will represent Shropshire in tournaments played throughout the academic year.

The U14 lacrosse team played a brilliant match against Birkenhead School last week and won 13-5. Again we had a mixture of experienced players alongside novices, which makes the result even more pleasing.

Sophia Breese, a new player, shot 2 of the 13 goals, and Mimi Ashworth was named Player of the Match.
