Although it resulted in a loss, the team worked tirelessly to advance the ball up the court and make the most of their shooting opportunities. The mighty 3rd team were faced with a tough challenge of playing Queen Anne’s 2nd team, however, they made it look easy! As a crowd formed, the girls stormed ahead and won 16-2.

Football

In a challenging match-up against Wellington, the 1st XI faced a tough first half, conceding three penalties that created a significant hurdle. Despite scoring two goals in the second half, the team found themselves in a nerve-wracking situation in the final 10 minutes, but Wellington held on for the win. Meanwhile, in the 2nd XI, Alex Maynard continued his impressive goal streak with another hat-trick. However, their efforts fell short in a closely contested match, ending in a 4-3 defeat. The 3rd XI struggled against adverse pitch conditions and a well-organized opponent, resulting in a 0-7 loss. The U16s maintained their position at the top of the table with a convincing 5-0 victory. Lev Vass (2), Thomas Dyson, Ethan McMillan, and Akul Pullai all contributed goals to secure the win.
