Unfortunately, it was a loss at home to Queens Mary 34-12.
Better news for the athletics team who secured two personal bests, with one of them seeing Rono win his 800m heat.
Our equestrian team managed to secure a great 4th place overall as a team at Surrey. Camilla came 10th in the individual event.
Captain Morwenna Killen was understandably proud of the team.
“We came 4th as a team, which wasn’t the best result, but up against strong competition we did very well and have got feedback which we can work on and become a lot better at. It was a successful day as a team, because two of our riders have had serious falls whilst showjumping, but had clear and stylish jumping rounds, overcoming their nerves. Camilla Wallis was placed 10th individually.
“It was a fun and cheerful day had by the team, yet again doing our club proud!”
A great week for our cricketers as all four teams won their matches. Both the 1s and the 2s beat their Gravesend opponents by 6 wickets. Our 3s beat UKC by 2 wickets and the 4s beat Canterbury 3s by 4 wickets.
Our women’s cricket team played UKC at the weekend in their first BUCS fixture and got off to a great start, beating them by 2 wickets.
We’ve been a very quiet team so far this season but today we played in our first indoor fixture against UKC and we beat them by 2 wickets! After a rocky few months we’re so happy to get the ball rolling with this win and are so proud of ourselves! Bring on 2019 and Varsity! ??? pic.twitter.com/LAiFQ8gmG3

In another derby against, our girls beat UKC 58-46 in a closely fought game.
It was another clean sweep for the men’s football teams. The 1’s won comfortably 5-0 against LSE, and 2’s won 4-2 against UKC. Our 3’s won 3-2 and the 4’s came out on top 2-1 against St Mary’s with the winner being a 91st minute penalty.
Not quite as good result for our girls who unfortunately lost 4-2 to Brighton.
Netball captain, Olivia Miles said: “We won against St Mary’s 1st, 53-37. Was a brilliant game, and was the best we’ve played all season by far. Every individual put all of their effort in and it definitely showed on court.
“My player of the match is Georgia Day who played outstanding in defence and picked up lots of loose balls.”
Netball 2’s lost 43-42 and everyone fought so hard till the end!!! Player of the match is Shelby who played up and made outstanding interceptions!
The 3’s won a close game against Kings 45-41.
An outstanding result for 1s, who beat Kings 2s 8-0.
Our women’s team had an equally successful week with the 1’s beating King’s 2-1, while the 2’s drew 3-3 in a tight match.
Not such a good week for our women’s LaX team who lost away to Essex 20-6.
