In rugby, the Under 16s returned to their cup-winning ways with a hard worked 33-5 victory over Ludlow. Though a good win, to progress further in the competition they will have to convert their chances more consistently.
With the weather causing cancellations to all home and local away games, the Under 14s and Under 15s did manage to play King Henry VIII School Coventry, both losing to well organised opposition.
The Lancaster Under 13 and Under 12 teams made a strong start to their rugby season winning their first matches against Ludlow. The Under 13s won 37-25 and Under 12s won 35-0
In cross country, the team performed brilliantly in the East Midlands Independent League on another tough, demanding course - basically three farm fields full of mud, long grass, uneven ground, (and cow muck!)
Georgie Benbow was superb second in the Open Girls race out of 86. Sophia Malpass tenth. Lizzie 16th, Tess Sanders 18th, Gina Rowlinson 36th and Hannah Blackstad 43rd. The Girls team came second.
Henry Kimberley finished 37th out of 65 in Senior Boys (Sixth Form) form). Congratulations to them all!
The first team once again were too strong for their opposition, beating Thomas Telford School and Princethorpe College convincingly. The Under 16s also won but the second VII lost out to Princethorpe. The Under 12s continue their unbeaten record with a win against Lucton School but the Under 13B team lost out.
On Friday, the Lancaster Under 13A squad travelled to Berkhamstead School in Hertfordshire for their last game in the National Cup. They lost out to a very strong team boasting a six-foot shooter but put up a marvellous fight to the end and Mrs Ritchie-Morgan commended them for their effort and determination.
