Girls' sports: Overview of Michaelmas Term 2010

Girls’ Hockey
The girls have had another positive hockey season this year, with more fixtures that ever before, despite the recent cancellations due to weather.  We just missed out on qualifying for the Midlands tournament, but performed well throughout the competition. The season finished with a great win over Ellesmere and a fantastic performance against Moreton resulting in a 2-2 draw.  All in all, a good season, with things to build on next year.

Netball is the main team sport played in the Lent term; however the county tournament took place in November.  It’s a difficult tournament, with many strong teams entering and obviously our training doesn’t fully kick in until after Christmas.  However, the team played exceptionally well and went through to the semi finals for the very first time.  Our only other netball fixture was against QEGS Blackburn which we won convincingly 40-20.

Girls have competed in 2 major events this year and been successful at both, which is particularly impressive considering the experience of the team.  At Agecroft in October, the girls secured a victory over two local crews with a winning margin of 90 seconds.  In November, at Northwich the coxed 4 came 2nd out of 8 crews.
