U11 Sussex Hockey Tournament

The U11 Hockey team battled hard against strong opposition in the Sussex Hockey Tournament this week, finishing in joint 4th place with Ardingly College. It was a difficult opening game against St Andrews, which we lost by 3 goals to nil, after holding them superbly in the first half to 0-0. The next game against Bede’s was closely fought however Bede’s snatched a winning goal towards the end of the match. A great end to end game against Ardingly resulted in a nil-all draw. The final match against Burgess Hill was a tremendous battle, with Megan Lee stoically leading our defence against a barrage of attacks; Burgess Hill finally got the ball over the goal line in the second half. Well played, girls! A great team effort!

U12 & U13 Netball v Buckswood

The Years 7 & 8 had an excellent afternoon of Netball against Buckswood on Wednesday. With some lovely attacking and shooting work between Lana Harffey-Burkhill and Amy Cowderoy, the U12s clocked up an outstanding win of 17-1. Some of their passing passages through court were outstanding. The U13s, very much suffering with illness, bravely managed to hold onto a 12 all draw, with Katy-Anne Burr making some very important interceptions and converting play many times successfully. Aafreen Mohammed stepped into shoot and Isobelle Barlow replaced Izzy Allen at centre. A very well earned draw for the girls.

U11 IAPS Netball Tournament at Roedean

Well done to our U11 Netball squad for competing in the IAPS Netball competition at Roedean. It was a fantastic learning experience, thoroughly enjoyed by the girls. Competition was extremely tough but we got off to a great start with a win against Walthamstow Hall by 2 goals to 1. Confidence was affected after two tough matches against Guildford High and Holmewood House but the girls competed hard to win the ball in every match and their spacing and passing improved in the later stages of the competition with close games against Oakwood School, Hawthorns, Cottesmore and Junior Kings.
