Withington Girls’ School U14s triumphed at the England Lacrosse National Schools Lacrosse Championships on Tuesday 22nd March, securing the school's first national lacrosse title.

After finishing second in the group stage with the highest goal difference, the team progressed through the competition to meet Birkenhead School in the final and remained undefeated all day.

This follows the success of the school's U14 netball team who, in the previous week, brought home a bronze medal from the England Netball National Schools' Finals.

Mrs Roberts, Head of Lacrosse, said: "What a fantastic achievement for this talented team.

"With nine girls already part of the England Lacrosse talent pathway, I knew this team had the potential to do very well at National Schools.

"Throughout the day, we talked about self-belief, belief in their teammates and belief that they could go all the way and they did."

The annual tournament, which has been running for almost 80 years, took place at the Aldershot Garrison Sports Centre between Saturday 19th and Tuesday 22nd March.

The competition saw over 3,000 pupils, playing for almost 200 school teams, battle for the crown in four different age groups.
