Weekend of Sporting Achievements for our Boys and Girls

Published on 19 March 2007 Categories: Sports,  Senior School

Our 1st XI girls' hockey team continued their fantastic season by winning the RAF Scottish Cup yesterday at Peffermill. They beat Edinburgh Hockey (formerly MIM) 4-3 on flicks, after drawing 2-2. This brings their tally of Scottish Cup victories this season to two, having won the U18 Scottish Schools Cups Final already this month.

In the same competition, the boys' hockey team won the RAF Plate by beating Clydesdale 4-2 on flicks after a 3-3 score line.

On the rugby front, the U16 team won the Goldenacre Sevens beating Glasgow Academy in final.

Meanwhile our S3 1st XV won at Dollar Academy making them unbeaten this season. Having scored 1,211 points with only 214 points against, they played 29 matches and won 28. Only a draw with Merchiston Castle prevented a perfect season, which included their 12-5 win over Edinburgh Academy at Murrayfield in the Bell Lawrie Scottish Schools' Cup Final.

The cricket season is still young but our girls' team has started it well with a win at the Cricket Scotland Inter District Indoor Tournament.
