A fantastic morning for our U11s hockey team at the Moreton Hall tournament. Five games, five wins, 13 goals scored, 0 goals conceded and a gold medal to take home!
Our U10 team also played brilliantly in the Packwood tournament coming home with a bronze medal after a hard fought extra time playoff game.
An impressive week of hockey for our Senior School teams started on Monday when our U16 team played a training game with King’s, winning 3-2.
On Tuesday, our U14 hockey team represented Cheshire in the North West regional round of the National Schools Competition at Timperley Hockey Club. The tournament involved seven schools overall. In our Section we played Sedbergh School, losing 2 – 4 and then had an excellent 3 – 0 win v. Kirkham Grammar. Each school in the section finished with a win and a loss and the decisive factor, goals scored, placed our team first in the Section. We then played Manchester High in a Semi Final, another competitive game, resulting in a 1 – 0 win to Queen’s. The two semi-final winners, Queen’s and Sedbergh were placed equal first overall and have both qualified to represent the North West at the North of England tournament later in November. Congratulations to Holly, Emma, Ottilie, Eve, Tallulah, Hattie, Elinor, Amelia, Ava, Emma, Hannah, Freya, Lola, Priya and Isabella.
On Wednesday we played in the Cheshire U18 qualifier beating West Kirby 2-0 which means we have qualified for the four-school final in March.
Well done to the U16 team on their Sisters in Sports 2nd round match vs Cheadle which was 18-18 into extra time, and time for the golden goal!
It was an amazing game and the U16s were unlucky to lose 19-18 in the last 30 seconds!
Last weekend Hailey in Year 3 on her pony Lady Leah competed in a dressage competition at Aintree. It was her first time in such a big arena and she did fantastically well with her proud parents looking on. Well done Hailey!
Lavinia in Year 11 and her Pony "Dublin", featured in Horse & Hound magazine and on the British Dressage news website when they competed against many Professional adult riders and horses at the BD High Profile Show in Leicestershire last Saturday, winning both their classes on high percentages. Medium Freestyle to Music 71.50%, Advanced Medium Freestyle to Music 71.00%; the pair won the FEI Pony Team Test for the last two consecutive years at this prestigious High Profile show, so the combination decided to lift their hooves a little higher and dressage dance in time to their own music and floor plan. Well done Lavinia and Dublin!
