First up for our tennis teams this season on 30th April was an away trip to Godolphin & Latymer. Our U12 team lost 30-153, our U14 lost 4-12 and U15 lost 6-19, but it was fantastic to see so many girls playing & enjoying their tennis – especially the 24 Year 7 girls representing each school!
Following up on May 2nd, our U13s and U12s made the short trip to St Benedict’s where they played a triangular against West London Free School and St Benedicts in the Aegon Cup. The team took wins against St Benedicts 10-2 and West London Free School 12-0 – well done to the girls who played.
Our U13 Water Polo travelled to for the ESSA Junior Girls Championship Finals at Northampton School for Boys, hosted by Alleyn’s School, on 30th April.
The girls lost their two pool matches, facing Alleyn’s in the 5th/ 6th play-off. It was a hard-fought match, with a draw at full time. It then went to penalties, with NHEHS losing 1-3 to Alleyn’s, taking 6th place overall. Well done to the girls for all the training they put in to play at such a high level.
