Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 31st October 2016

The week leading up to half term was jammed packed with sports fixtures.

NETBALL

It was a very successful week on the netball front, with 10 matches and 8 wins. The U15 A and B’s played St Mary’s Ascot on Monday and won both matches convincingly. The 1st and 2nd team played St George’s and maintained their form throughout the matches to clinch 2 more wins.

The U12 A to E teams put all their shooting practice into good use and won four of the five matches, drawing the fifth.

Commiserations go to the U15 A team who faced a very slick Marist team in the second round of the School Sport Cup and despite their best efforts, were unable to close the gap in score with the  Marist finally winning by 6 goals.

The full results were as follows:

U15s v St Mary’s,Ascot

U15As:  won 29-7
U15 Bs:  won 31-6

Seniors v St George’s, Ascot

1st: won 20-17
2nd: won 20-18

U12s v St Mary’s, Ascot

U12As: won 15-7
U12Bs: won   8-3
U12Cs: drew  6-6
U12Ds: won 16-2
U12Es: won 13-0

U15 As V Marist School lost 28-34

Don’t forget detailed match reports with the Players Player and commendations are all available on the QAS Sport (www.qassport.org.uk) website.

SWIMMING

Fielding a very youthful Queen Anne’s School ‘Open’ swimming team in the St Mary’s, Ascot swim gala, the U15s put in a super team effort, gaining a hard fought 2nd place overall in an age category that saw our girls competing against far more senior swimmers.

The U13’s also swam superbly well against Hawley Place, St Mary’s School Ascot, Farnborough Hill and Wycombe High School. There was an array of good quality club swimmers on display from all the competing schools and Queen Anne’s took second place in this age category as well.

Congratulations go to Harriet Seaton who has been having a busy time competing for her swimming club and has achieved 11 county qualifying times so far this season and a regional qualifying time in 100m backstroke.

LACROSSE

Finally, congratulations go to all girls who have been selected to represent the county in lacrosse at U15 and U19 level. Well done girls!
