Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 21st November 2016

Please see below a round up of the Sports News from Queen Anne’s in the week beginning 14 November.

Netball

Last Monday the U15 netball teams faced tough opposition in their matches against St Helen’s and St Katharine’s. The U15 A’s had to work really hard to get the ball into the circle against some very physical defence. There was some great defensive play and the final score did not reflect the overall performance from the team.

Results
U15 As: Lost 7 – 20
U15 Bs: Lost 6 – 9

Swimming

The U15 and U13 swim squads swam at the Wycombe Abbey Invitational Swimming Gala last Wednesday competing against Berkhamsted, Headington, Pipers Corner, St Helen’s & St Katharine’s and Wycombe Abbey. There were some great individual performances with the U15’s finishing 3rd out of 6 schools and the U13s finishing 2nd out of 6 schools.

Rowing

On Wednesday, 13 of the Queen Anne’s rowing team went to the Oratory School for a triathlon. This involved a 2k run, a full body circuit and a team 4K erg in mixed teams.

It is great to be able to report that some of the girls beat the boys on the run and the ergo sprints. The Oratory head coach said that was the hardest he had seen them work! The team that came first overall included Carla Claussen, Louisa McCutcheon and Rachel Green.

Tennis

On Tuesday the U18 A tennis team took on Bradfield in their opening match of what will hopefully be a successful Aegon campaign. They won their singles matches with ease and after the doubles matches were able to secure the overall win 10-2. The following day the weather took a turn for the worse when they then faced St Mary’s Ascot.

There were some very close matches with lots of deuces, tie breaks and an awful lot of rain. Eventually Queen Anne’s came through to win overall 7-5 and are now successfully through to the county knockouts.
