Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 13th November 2017

A round up of all the latest sports news from Queen Anne’s in the week commencing Monday 6 November.

Cross Country

This week has been a busy cross country week. On Tuesday, the U12 and U13 teams competed in a relay cross country event in torrential rain at St Helen’s and St Katharine’s. In the U12 category, the U12 A team placed 4th and the U13 A team placed 2nd after an excellent performance.

The Junior Girls Cross Country Cup team travelled down to Leweston School in Dorset for the regional round. It had rained heavily the night before and the course was very muddy with all girls putting in a sterling effort in what can only be described as treacherous conditions.

Swimming

The U13 and U15 swim teams competed in a gala against LVS Ascot and, after taking a commanding lead, took the win with a score of 91 versus LVS’s 49.

Rowing

This weekend Amy H (U5) raced on the Tideway, finishing 4th out of 42 teams. Amy and her team were only 2 seconds away from 3rd place and just 1 minute behind the winners.

Around a month ago, several Queen Anne’s girls trialled for lacrosse supercounties. Supercounties have replaced the old Berkshire county system, with five teams worth of girls being selected from all of the lacrosse playing schools in the South West region.

The U19 girls were assessed at the U19 South West Rally, with the U15s being assessed at the Berkshire Schools tournament. After a long wait, the teams have just been announced and a big congratulations goes to the fourteen U19 girls and the twelve U15 girls who were selected.
