Girls Lacrosse - A Team with Great Potential!

Author -  Shannon Sager

Last Friday, our Girls’ Lacrosse team ventured across to Avondale Race Course to compete in the AKSS Lacrosse Championship. Throughout the day they played several games winning their pool and semi-finals, putting them in the final game against Westlake Girls High School. Although our team comprised mainly of Yr 9 students, with no one above Yr 11 Pinehurst still managed a 0-0 result at half time against the Yr 12-13 Westlake team. Pinehurst fought hard and played well but could not compete with the club playing captain of the Westlake team. They lost 3-Nil but gained 2nd place in the division.
Making it to the final was an awesome achievement on the day considering a number of our Year 9 students had never picked up a lacrosse stick until this year. Many thanks to our TIC & referee, Mrs Perkins & Student Coach Hilary Parsons who attended on the day. Our thanks also extends the ex-Pinehurst student Tegan Edmonds for volunteering her time throughout the season to help coach the team.
Team Georgia Jia-Zhi (Georgia) Cheng, Edelyn Chiew, Chase Clayton, Abigail (Abby) Exon, Zoe Exon, Antonia Kerekere-Anderson, Ellen Lea, Kyla Lehndorf, Georgia Norling, Mikayla O'Brien, Amy Pennington, Hana Smith, Amelia Wheaton, Claire Wheaton, Ye (Maggie) Yue.
