Another successful sporting weekend!

  • Post Category:Sport

The Netball Teams played some really tough matches against Cheltenham Ladies’ College and Marlborough College last week. All teams showed great fighting spirit and worked very hard. The U14Cs beat Marlborough 22-18, while the other teams suffered narrow losses. The 1st XI Hockey Team had a much better performance against Cheltenham Ladies’, holding them to a 0-0 draw. On Saturday, 11 of our athletes represented North Wilts at the County Cross Country Championships at Grittleton.  Despite the very muddy conditions, all athletes stepped up to the challenge and finished well. Particular notable finishes were from Caroline who won the Inter Girls with Lucy also on the podium in 3rd. Susie was 4th in the junior girls a year early, with Davina and Ella in 10th and 12th, winning both the A and B Team event for North Wilts. We wait to confirm who is selected for the South West Championships but all can be extremely proud of their performances on the day. In lacrosse we edge ever closer to Downe House, with four wins and two draws out of the nine matches and the 1st and U15 Teams neck and neck until the dying minutes. The South West Fencing Championships were also a success as Annabel won Bronze in the U14 age group. Some fantastic individual and team efforts were made this week. Well done to all who took part.
