The Queen Anne’s Summer Sport Round Up

Thursday 7th September 2017

A round up of all the summer sports news from Queen Anne’s including an Alumnae achievement and our sports awards guest.

Lacrosse

Miss O’Brien and Miss Doodson took 2 teams to the Lacrosse festival that was running alongside the lacrosse world cup at the University of Surrey over the summer. The U15’s came away in third place with a bronze medal. The highlight being beating Wycombe Abbey 8-3.

The U13’s made the final and finished in second place overall with a silver medal.

The girls obtained many autographs and photos with international players, including Charlotte Goforth managing to get her photo taken with the entire England team. More importantly the girls gained so much experience from watching such high level matches and hopefully can put in to practice some of the things that they seen in the upcoming lacrosse season.

Congratulations to Holly Bureau who was selected for the U15 England regional lacrosse academy over the summer holidays.

Alex Griffin, Abby Sloman and Emily Oram were accepted into the U19 National lacrosse academy. These girls are now in the pool of players from which the England U19 team is selected. So we look forward to hearing about possible England selection in the future.
