Alumnae Lacrosse Match

Fantastic Alumnae Match against Senior Team in the sunshine!

On a very hot Saturday afternoon, our dynamic and energetic Alumnae Lacrosse Team took on the current u18A  to compete for the newly created 'St Mary's Calne Lacrosse Cup'.

After lots of warming up and a team photo, the match began with an early goal from the Alumnae team - led by Belinda Harrison (2021 Leaver), along with Caroline Copeman (1998 Leaver), Camilla Davies (1983 Leaver), Lucy Dollar (2023 Leaver), Tessa Harrison (2023 Leaver), Lily Mallinson (2023 Leaver), Phoebe Matten (2023 Leaver), Jess Westwood (2018 Leaver) and Alicia Whitaker (2018 Leaver). We were also especially grateful to Mrs Lucy Weedon, Head of Classics and Wila, current LV for also joining the team and playing so well.

It was a great match with lots of battles and laughter, but ultimately the U18 won through with tactics and goals.  Led by UVI pupils Honor & Ophelia the final score was 9-5.  As Mr David Abini, Head of Lacrosse said "It was great to see students past and present competing in this fixture, with lots of skill on show by both teams. The current team very much enjoyed playing the alumni and although the scoreline was in favour of the 1st, the game was closer than it seemed and provided a fantastic and enjoyable atmosphere for all involved, especially the spectators!"

Camilla Davies was supported by her husband and mother, who thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, "Many thanks for a super day on Saturday -  I so loved being out there on the lax pitch again, and my mum so enjoyed watching.  Everyone we spoke with was so nice and friendly, it was such a nice hot atmosphere.  Delicious sandwiches too!  Can't wait for next year!"

A provisional date of Saturday 7th September 2024 has been reserved in the school diary with more information to follow!
