Junior-Sculling-Head-achievements-March2016

Hannah 12-2, Imogen 11-2 and Ellie 10-4 recently competed in the Junior National Sculling Head, rowing for their clubs at the Olympic venue, Eton Dorney Lake.

Hannah and Imogen, rowing for Northwich RC, came 5th in the WJ17 4x and Ellie, rowing for Trafford RC, came 1st in the WJ15 4x.

Congratulations to all girls.

U15 CRICKET

The U15 cricket team took part in the Cheshire County Indoor final after qualifying as Trafford Champions in a previous competition. The team won their section of 2 matches and then played Bramhall High School in the semi final. Bramhall proved too strong, having a number of county players on their team. However our girls put up a good fight (as you would expect them to do!!!).

Well done to Hannah Maybury and her team.

  

Eleanor’s Rowing Achievement

Dorney-2016-WJ15-4X-crew

Eleanor from year 10 took part in the competiton in a “woman junior 15 coxed quad“.

Eleanor is the stroke person of that crew, and she led that crew to an amazing victory with more than 32s on the next closest opposition.

This is the first national level competition of the season and is a fantastic achievement!

Ellie and her crew have trained very well and very hard over the winter.

Well done!

THE END OF ANOTHER HOCKEY SEASON!!!

It does not seem 5 minutes since the first matches in September but here we are at the end of another season. At times it has been quite a challenging one but Mrs O’Neal and I would like to thank all girls who have attended practices and played for school in the many mid-week and weekend matches and tournaments for making it such an enjoyable one. Congratulations to all those who have been successful this season on their teams, in and out of school, for their county teams and in the different academies,

Good luck to those who get selected for the junior regional performance centre in the summer.

We would also like to thank all the parents for their support on and off the pitch. We couldn’t do everything we do without your continued support. Thank you.

Hang up your Astros, have a good rest and see you all in September.

YEAR 7 : KING’S SCHOOL, CHESTER INVITATION TOURNAMENT

The year 7 played their final hockey of the season at the The King’s School, Chester Invitation Tournament on Saturday.

Their first match was against a very strong Queens’ School, Chester which we narrowly lost by 1 goal to 0. Queens went on to win the major part of the tournament so we didn’t do so badly, really!!

We won our other match 1-0 against King’s School, Chester ‘B’ team which placed us second in our little section. This put us into the plate competition in which we played another 3 matches. We beat Wilmslow High School 3-0  and drew 0-0 with Birkenhead Academy and King’s Chester ‘A’. These results meant that we had won the Plate Competition. Well done to Jenny Joyce and her team.

SENIOR HOCKEY PRACTICE

We had our final senior hockey practice of the season today with all 3 age groups dressing up.

The seniors dressed up as Harry Potter characters ( as they had done last Saturday), the year 11’s dressed up as netball players and borrowed the year 11 netball kit and the year 10 dressed up in onesies!!!!

A great time was had by all although not a lot of serious hockey was played!!!

Mrs Finch and Mrs O’Neal would like to thank everyone for making this season so enjoyable and successful. It doesn’t seem five minutes since last September: where has the season gone?

See you all at the Sports Dinner on Wednesday 30th March. If you have not paid for your ticket please do so as soon as possible. Thank you.

U16 County Hockey – Champions

Congratulations to the U16 Hockey team who competed in the county hockey tournament last Saturday.  They played and beat Loreto and Woodhey, then came to the final match v Withington.  This was a very evenly matched game with both sides having chances, Withington coming closest scoring from a penalty corner but the goal was disallowed for an infringement.  The two teams could not be separated and the game finished a draw.  And because they had both beaten the other two teams they could not be separated on points either so the trophy is shared.  All the matches were very close, with some excellent defending from all teams and all GKs showing a lot of ability.  Well done girls, an excellent way to finish the season and five years of playing together – as County Champions!!
