Sports round-up – 10th October 2015

Whilst the Prep School opened its doors for Open Day, over at the Senior School Warminster's rugby teams hosted Hampshire Collegiate School. Frustratingly HCS had cancelled the 1st XV games due to injuries the day before. The U15's XV continue to impress with a hard fought 29-17 victory with Felix Sheves and Stanley Admiral a brace of tries. Whilst the U12's struggled in their first game of the season, with Josh Taylor scoring the only try and player of the match in their 31-7 loss, the U13's battled back from their previous game to a 52-12 win. Bryce Furlong, player of the match was outstanding scoring six tries.

The girls hockey teams faced Monkton Combe in what they knew would be a tough fixture. The 1st XI ended up losing 0-6 whilst the 2nds lost. The U15's began slowly, losing two early goals. However, a dominant second half saw Warminster pull one back. Unfortunately, they simply could not draw level.

Earlier in the week, Warminster Senior School Cross Country runners went to Stonar School to compete in the West Wilts School's event. Four of the six runners will now progress to the county round at Grittleton House. Congratulations to Anna Payne winning the Year 7 girls race, whilst Megan Galpin came 5th. Bryce Furlong came 4th in the combined Year 8 & 9 event, whilst Ellen Reynolds came 5th in the Year 10-11 race.

The U15’ s and U16’s faced Shaftesbury School during the week with mixed success. The U16’s credited themselves with a much improved performance than last year in their narrow loss, whilst the U15’s remained unbeaten with a 40-7 points win.

The Prep School  faced  a number of fixtures during the week. On Wednesday, the boys U11 rugby team faced Stonar School. This was a tough game on a very big pitch. However the Warminster team battled their way to a 3-2 try victory. The U10B' played Stonar's A team but still came away with a convincing victory.

The girls U10's and U11's played a triangular with Stonar and St Francis School.  Both teams drew against Stonar. The U10’s  lost 0-2 against St Francis whilst U11 won 1-0.

It has been an extremely positive first half of term sport and everyone deserves their well earned break.
