Tournament Result – Monday 20th March – Y5/6 Pop Lacrosse
The afternoon of Monday 20th saw Whitemoor take to the pitches of Highfields – to compete in the Y5/6 Lacrosse competition for the very first time!
Lacrosse has been a new addition to Whitemoor's afterschool club programme for 2016-17, and the skill development of pupils who've attended this club has been amazing. This showed in fantastic performances against the likes of Fernwood, Southwark and Blue Bell Hill.
After a slow start to the competition (losing to Blue Bell Hill Fernwood A teams) we went on to record victories against Blue Bell Hill B team, Southwark and Fernwood B team. This took us through to the first versus second play-offs, with Fernwood coming out on top again.
However, we must celebrate coming away with Silver Medals in a totally new sport. It's also worth mentioning that the matches were played under awful weather conditions, but not one of our players complained about this. A massive well done to the children on both accounts!
The Year 5/6 Lacrosse Team consisted of: Megan M, Brian D, Natasha C, Amirah A, Castel B, Mason N, Alfie G and Troy B.
