Godolphin is passionate about Lacrosse. As one of our main sports, this is taught to all year groups in the Autumn and Spring Terms.
The Lacrosse Teams regularly play matches on Saturdays against schools such as St Marys Calne, Sherborne Girls, Guildford High, Cheltenham Ladies College, Queens Anne’s School, St Swithuns. Wherever possible, Godolphin successfully manages at least two teams from each year group. It has been a particularly successful season for the the U12’s who were undefeated.
Sadly the U13, U14 and U15 Nationals Schools Lacrosse Championships were cancelled this year due to inclement weather! However, the U19A and U19B were rescheduled with the U19A making it into Division 1. At the County tournament the First team came 2nd and at the South West Rally the came 3rd. Three pupils were selected from County to play in the U19 Regional Schools tournament. Again due to poor weather all the other tournaments were cancelled.
In 2018, seven pupils were selected for the U15 Super Counties and five at U19. Three U13 pupils, seven U14 and five U15’s were selected to join the two Senior U17 girls at the England Regional Academy. Two pupils represented Wales, one in the U19A & and the other U19B at the Home Internationals.
We are also proud to say that two of our Alumnae played in the Lacrosse World Cup in 2017, one represented Wales and the other England.Leslie Banks
