U12 and U13 Lacrosse Success
Published on 08/10/18
The Claremont Fan Court U12 and U13 lacrosse squads competed in a large lacrosse tournament in Oxford on Sunday 7 October, playing exceptionally well against some top schools, including Bedford, St Helens, St Katherine’s, St Swithun’s, St Mary’s Calne, Godolphin and St Paul's.
The U13s performed strongly to finish 2nd in their pool. The girls continued to play well, qualifying for the semi-finals against Godolphin but narrowly missed out in a 2-0 defeat. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic effort overall and the girls were pleased with a 3rd place finish.
The U12s showed excellent strength to win every match in their pool, beating Godolphin A, St Swithun’s A and St Mary’s Calne A. Their winning streak continued with additional wins against St Helen's and St Katherine's A which secured them a place in the finals against St Mary's Calne who the team had already faced earlier. Unfortunately, with tired legs the girls narrowly lost 3-2 but finished the competition with heads held high wearing silver medals.
A special mention goes to India S and Tabitha W who both performed extremely well for their individual teams.
