The three hockey teams have been training hard and playing regular fixtures. The 1st team have played their Tier 2 cup match and unfortunately the Portsmouth Grammar side were more experienced than us. We now enter the Tier 3 tournament where we face St. Teresa’s, Effingham. The 1st team had close matches with Ibstock Place 1st XI, Reed’s 2nd XI and Wellington College 2nd XI. This week saw them draw with Aldenham and beat Cranleigh 4th XI.
The 2nd XI have had some challenging fixtures but they continue to be enthusiastic and motivated to improve. They are working hard in practice and this week they secured a good win against Aldenham. It was a tough match against Wellington 4th XI on Saturday but they will pick themselves up and go again this week.
The 3rd XI had a nail biting match with Reed's 4th XI. It was perfectly matched and the game was very close. The final score was a 2-2 draw.
The girls continue to excel in football. The 1st team have won all their friendly fixtures to date, Worth, Guildford High and Gordon’s and were semi finalists in the ISFA U18 Girls’ Sevens Tournament held at the school. They unfortunately lost 0-2 to Ardingly. The girls played ACS Cobham on Thursday in the ISFA Cup. ACS were winners last year so we knew it was going to be hard. The girls performed well but lost to a very consistent team.
The girls have continued to work hard in training and this has started to pay off. They unfortunately lost to a strong Wellington College side but beat St. George’s, Ascot 1st team and St. Catherine’s Bramley, 5th and 4th Team. They are preparing for the small school’s tournament which is in November.
The first house event was the House Fives. Chetwynd were the winners of this event.
It has been a busy time for Girls' sport but the girls continue to demonstrate a commitment to learn and are well motivated in matches, even though the results might not go our way. We are very proud of all of them for displaying a fantastic attitude towards sport even if they are not taking part in representative sports.
