St Swithun’s School, Winchester 1st lacrosse team competed in and won the
annual Berkhamsted 8-a-side tournament in September.
Morning play started off in a fast paced style with tough competition. A draw against St Alban’s High School in the
first match of the day was enough to spark a fire in the St Swithun’s team. St
Swithun’s soon began working together almost effortlessly to produce further
wins. The morning results placed the 1st
team in the top division for afternoon play.
In the afternoon the 1sts fought even harder for the 50/50 balls, playing
patiently in attack and maintaining possession for long periods of time. Ultimately this led to them defeating two of
their fiercest competitors; Lady Eleanor High School and Guildford High School. Outstanding goals came from a variety of
players, and an excellent team effort in defence led to St Swithun’s winning
the top division.
