LACROSSE

Congratulations to our senior lacrosse players who have been selected to represent the South West U19 lacrosse team. The girls have been through trials and extensive training to get the final call up, putting them among the best lacrosse players in the South West region.

Sixth Form pupil Zimeng Wu is also currently training with the England U19 lacrosse team and has made the South West A team alongside Florence Harting and Mia Hurst, who are both gaining their first cap at U19 regional level.

Well done to the U14 squad on their performance at the Regional Lacrosse Championship. The team were unbeaten in nine of out ten games, only losing to the eventual winners and coming 3rd place in the West.

U14 Lax

Congratulations to all LC1 and LC2 girls who participated in House Lacrosse. The new format of six-aside games led to all girls taking part, with St Margaret’s and Farnley Lodge finishing joint 1st place. 

SKIING 

Eight girls travelled to Flaine to compete in the British Schoolgirl Races on Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st January. The whole team performed well, improving considerably on times from the previous year.

The A team was placed 5th overall, out of non-registered skiers in Slalom and Giant Slalom, with 49 teams taking part in total.

Binia Leung and Rose McKelvie were placed 4th and 5th, narrowly missing out on a podium position after combining their results from Slalom and GS. The B team were knocked out just before the quarter final stage of the parallel slalom, after 3 excellent rounds.

The dedication and commitment shown by all the girls this year has been exceptional. Ski training will begin again in the summer term.
