A strong performance in the National Schools U16 tournament at Timperley saw Queen’s placed third in the Northwest of England. The girls won all three of their section matches and drew 1-1 against Sedbergh in the semi-final but sadly lost 3-4 on penalties. Well done to all the girls involved: Anna, Eleanor, Francesca, Maddie, Sophie, Holly, Nicole, Beth, Alice, Leah, Cara, Jasmine, Felicity, Anna and Maryam.
Tuesday brought the North of England round of the National Schools Under 14 tournament at Wakefield. A similar scenario saw Queen’s places third in the NORTH of England after two wins and a draw saw them into the semi-final where they drew 1-1 against Hill House School but lost 3-4 on penalties. Congratulations to Lowri, Emma, Grace, Mica, Ella, Annie, Hattie, Trixie, Holly, Hannah, Lucy, Esther, Ava, Ava and Amy.
It’s been an exciting six months for Ella in Year 9 in the world of Lacrosse. Selection for both the Cheshire U13 and U15 Lacrosse teams earlier in year was followed by an invitation to participate in the Metros exchange programme with the USA.
Her recent selection for Cheshire U18A team at the age of 14 is credit to her recognised ability. This was swiftly followed by her debut for Oxton 'Ladies' team, who are seeking to retain their status as European Champions.
It was whilst competing for Oxton, that she was invited to attend the North Regional Academy, alongside some of her fellow Queen's pupils in older age groups.
With Regional and Talent Pathway Tournaments, the U18 Northern Trials and a trip to the USA to look forward to, it will be a busy year ahead.
We're also immensely proud to say that half of the U15A Cheshire Lacrosse team is made up of Queen's girls. Well done to the following girls for being selected to this prestigious team:
• Anna Boyne
• Bea Brown
• Jessica Byrne
• Ella Dimbylow
• Abby Jennings
• Libby Kay
• Lucy McBurney
• Bethany Norton
• Amelia Rodenhurst
A great result for our Year 7 5-a-side team crowned champions of the Chester and District tournament and onto the next round!
Three Lower School teams - U9s, U10s and U11s, represented Queen's in a swimming gala at Birkenhead. The enthusiasm of the girls beforehand was a delight to see, and the atmosphere on poolside was full of encouragement and enjoyment from both schools. Putting diving skills to the test - the girls won a first place in almost every race, and in five races, they gained both first and second places. To return home with an overall winning result of 102-78 added an extra sparkle to the evening. Well done girls!
