Tuesday 3rd January 2017
It was a busy but successful Michaelmas Term on the sports field with some fantastic collective and individual achievements both in and out of school time.
There was 48 netball matches, with 25 wins recorded. The U16 netball team were the most successful this term with a 75% win rate. They also successfully qualified via the County round for the Regional Round of the National Schools Netball Tournament in January.
Another team who qualified for the Regionals are the trampoline squad who will compete again in February. The Aegon tennis team of Eliza McCreery, Kate Hillas, Bella Bowater and Georgie Evans also made it through to Regional knockouts that start in January
8 swim teams competed with 7 fixtures. The most successful team was U13 swim squad and the highlight of the term was beating Downe House by one point!
The rowers started a programme of fixtures this term building on the launch of the QA boat club. They are looking forward to racing in the indoor champs in 2017 and starting to race as Queen Anne’s at official regattas.
As well as taking many dance exams, the junior and senior dance companies performed at the Lift off Dance Festival.
It was a great term for lacrosse with a total of 73 matches taking place and an overall win rate of 61% across all teams. The most successful lacrosse team of the term was undoubtedly the U13As who had a 100% success rate, followed by the U15A team with a 75% success rate. Highlights include some notable wins with the 1sts and the U15As beating Berkhamstead, whose teams have won the National Schools for the last two years and all three U12 teams beating St. Catherine’s Bramley.
24 girls were selected to represent Berkshire at U15 or U19 level and 7 girls selected to trial for the U19 South West England Team. They will find out whether they have been selected in January.
We recognise also that Queen Anne’s girls managed to fit in success in other sports outside of school, including equestrian events, hockey, trampolining, gymnastics, dance, fencing, watersports, athletics and various charity sports endeavours.
The Crerar Quaiche is awarded termly to the team of the term. This term, as a reflection of their unbeaten record over 8 matches, it went to the U13 A lacrosse team. Congratulations girls!
