Harrogate, England: 10 October 2011 – Leading lacrosse players from Harrogate Ladies’ College (HLC) have triumphed yet again in a huge county sporting event: the Yorkshire Lacrosse Trials.
HLC, with a reputation for sporting excellence, hosted the event which saw more than fifty-five girls from across Yorkshire battle it out for a spot on the coveted Yorkshire lacrosse squads.
After a morning of highly competitive play, nine HLC girls were selected to play for the U19 A team and six young sportswomen were chosen to represent the B team.
Younger HLC pupils also showcased their sporting talents, with seven pupils securing places on the U15 A team and five girls claiming positions on the B team.
The U19 Yorkshire Lacrosse B team went on to beat rivals Lancashire 14 – 3 in a nail-biting match which took place on Sunday 2nd October.
Nicky Butters, Head of P.E said:
The girls’ performance at the Yorkshire Lacrosse trials was absolutely outstanding. To have 27 HLC pupils selected to play sport at county level is a huge achievement.
The U19 Yorkshire Lacrosse B team played brilliantly on Sunday and we are looking forward to the next round of county matches.
