Queen Anne’s Sports Update

Monday 3rd October 2016

Please find below for a round-up for all our sporting news – for more specific match details, please visit www.qassport.org.uk

The first swim match of the season took place last Monday against LVS Ascot. The U15 captain Zoe Campbell and the U13 captain Aimee Langwade led by example and helped both teams to win their matches. Mr Blunt would also like to thank Shannon Motha, the school swim captain who helped him. The final results are as follows:

U15 Team won on 76 points to 35

U15 Individual Race Winners – Harriet Seaton, Melissa Scanlon, Maddie Clark and Zoe Campbell

U13 Team won 68 points to 46

U13 Individual Race Winners – Louisa Haycock, Claudia Mowatt, Amber Ingram and Aimee Langwade.

On Tuesday 27 September, the U13A played in the first round of the School Sports’ Cup. After a long trip to Dean Close School in Cheltenham, the girls faced a very physical side. Although Dean Close remained in front throughout, the girls kept pressuring the ball which resulted in many turnovers and there were often moments of great unit work during the game. The final score was Queen Anne’s 10 : 32 Dean Close.

The U12 netball teams had their first matches of the season against the Abbey and won three of the four matches. The results were as follows:

  • U12A won 10-9
  • U12B won 17-4
  • U12C lost 10-11
  • U12D won 16-0

There will be news from the girls who went on the U4 netball residential in next week’s report.

Berkshire Schools’ Lacrosse Tournament

It has been a very successful week on the lacrosse front. On Wednesday, Queen Anne’s hosted the Berkshire Schools’ Lacrosse tournament. The U14A team won their first two games convincingly and then lost narrowly in their third game by a last minute goal, placing them second overall.

The U15A team battled well despite missing key players through injury. They won four games convincingly and drew one against rivals Downe House. They were drawn on points and goal difference with Downe House but narrowly missed out on winning by goal difference formulae placing second overall.

The 1st team gained four convincing wins and just missed out in their last match 3-2. They placed second.

As a result, thirty girls have been selected to go forward and trial for a place on the county team this Thursday. We wish them good luck.

On Saturday nine teams headed to Godolphin School. Overall we won seven games and lost two. A fantastic result. A big mention should go to the U12A team who won 7-3 in their first ever lacrosse match!


Over the Exeat weekend, Grace Wilkinson organised a group of her friends to participate in a Mini-Mudder.  You can tell which photo was before and which was after!


Izzy Zealley completed the Prince’s Trust charity Palace to Palace bike ride on Sunday . She covered the 45 miles from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle in a very respectable 3 hours 45 minutes, smashing her target time.


Thank you to those who came and supported the Staff v Sixth Form volleyball match as part of SportsAid week. Needless to say the competition was fierce and whilst the staff won this time round, it is only a matter of time before the Sixth Form hone their skills to perfection and will demand a rematch!
