A busy week of sport

A busy week of sport

On Monday 21st September the Senior School hosted four schools in a mini U8/9 rugby and hockey festival for girls. Once again, there was an exciting buzz around the campus and some excellent sport on show. The U9's won all of their games with captain Aaron Hale scoring three tries against Stonar School. The U8's also won many games with player of the festival for Warminster Matej Sustek doing some excellent tagging.

The U8 and U9 girls' continue to show great promise and both teams scored lots of goals. They move well around the pitch, we just need to focus on positional play.

On Wednesday the U10 and U11 girls hockey teams travelled to Sherborne Prep. The U10's are still learning to play together after some new faces having joined the school, but the U11's won 5-0 Lucy Rodgerson pulling the strings in midfield and Lottie Craven-Smith scoring all the goals to take her tally to 23 goals this season.

The Senior School took a very young and inexperienced side to the County U14 Championship at Dauntsey's. Despite working extremely hard they were out muscled by their stronger and skilful opponents. However, with the majority of the side back next year in this age group, it looks extremely promising.

The U18's also competed in their county tournament, this time at Marlborough College. Warminster narrowly lost against Marlborough College and Dauntsey's whilst drawing with St John's Marlborough.

On Friday the Senior School played host to the annual cross country primary schools event for Years 3-6. Notable performers in the girls Year 3 & 4 race were Niamh Crinion coming 4th, whilst for the boys, Barnaby Craven-Smith came 2nd and Theo Taylor came 6th. In the girls Year 5 & 6 race Anna Galpin came 5th and Annabel Munroe 7th, whilst in the boys race, Oliver Nathan raced home in first place.

This weekend was an exeat weekend with the teams taking a well-deserved break. Next week the senior school looks forward to hosting Bristol Cathedral School for rugby and Downside for girls’ hockey. The prep school will be on their travels to All Hallows and Millfield.
