Report

On Monday afternoon we welcomed Highfields for U9 Tag Rugby and Hockey matches. It was fantastic to able to give all our Year 3 & 4 pupils the opportunity to play with every child in Year 3&4 representing the school.

The girls formed four 6 a side teams and played against Highfields A and B side. We played 6 min quarters and although each individual player had a little less pitch time than a standard game, it was a great learning experience to watch one and other play, something we don't often get to do. 

Matches were competitive and played in good spirit, with all St Hugh's teams coming away with a win or a draw! It was very evident that their hard work in training is beginning to pay off and a super reminder of how far they have come since the start of the year.  It was very rewarding to observe the girls working together as a team, both in defence and attack. 

We look forward to more matches next week against Lincoln Minster and Grantham. Well done to all players.
