Elsewhere, the U14As have progressed to the quarter finals of the Surrey Schools 20/20 knockout cup competition where they face KCS, Wimbledon.
In tennis, in the Boys’ School Singles – Andrew Bartlett won the senior event and Jamie Richardson won the junior event. Lockites won senior house tennis, beating Weekites in the final. The Smith family won the annual family doubles competition, coming through an excellent match against the Dovell family in the final held on Carthusian Day. There have also been a series of impressive wins over Dulwich whilst the girls’ squad played their first ever match against Westminster.
In Year 9 house water polo Saunderites were the winners finishing ahead of Bodeites in second place. In the swimming inter-house relays, it was another great success with Saunderites running out as winners. Robinites are to be commended for joining in with very few swimmers including two fourths and achieving such a great time!
