National Schools' Lacrosse Championship Success

Tuesday 4th March 2014

National Schools’ Lacrosse season is upon us and in true Queen Anne’s spirit every girl in the school has been fully behind our teams. 

On Friday morning the school entered into the competitive spirit by watching a video prepared by our England Lacrosse Coaches in assembly and at every opportunity the girls were eagerly awaiting updates from our teams.  It was also lovely to have support on the side-lines and online via twitter from a number of former Queen Anne’s girls.

A heartfelt thanks and goodbye to the leaving U6 players who have shown commitment, determination and leadership to lacrosse throughout their time at Queen Anne’s.
