Mrs Caroline Treacy, Director of Sport
We packed in an impressive amount of hockey and netball fixtures during the last week of term. The first XI (pictured) played some excellent hockey in the final match of the season, narrowly losing to St Benedict’s. This was the final time Flo B (captain), Molly C and Lily M will represent Woldingham, and we thank them and 2nd XI players Bea B and Desiree F for all they have contributed to sport over their years at Woldingham.
In other hockey news, the U12 and U15 A and B teams took on Croydon High, with the U15As also squeezing in a rearranged fixture against Streatham & Clapham High.
Netball has been equally busy, with 15 teams representing Woldingham against Gordon’s last Saturday in some fiercely contested fixtures. There were great wins for the U13ABC, U14ABC and 3rd VII. The Seniors also took on Lingfield College this week in their last fixtures of the season, with three superb victories: 25-10 for the 1st VII, 28-15 for the 2nd VII and 14-6 for the 3rd VII. Cesca R and Lucy V played their final school fixtures against Gordons, while for 1st VII captain Alice S, Sport Ribbon India H, Harriet A, Maddie T and Sophie D, the Lingfield fixtures were their last Woldingham games. Again, we applaud them all for the commitment they have shown to Woldingham sport and the wonderful role models they have been.
This week, we were also delighted to resume our popular staff vs Upper Sixth netball match, which we haven’t been able to play since before the pandemic. With each side fielding two teams in the sunniest of spring weather, honours were even in this lovely event, with staff winning the A team match and the Upper Sixth the B team match.
As the season closes, we thank all our students for everything they have given to sport since the start of the year. We’re now very much looking forward to a super summer term of cricket, tennis and athletics.
