U12 Girls Report

Much of the U12 fixture list fell victim to the weather this year with only three of the original matches surviving.

The first match to go ahead was a tough one for the girls, seeing the School lose 7-2 to a strong St Georges side. Ellie and Kate, playing together for the first time won two of their three games, while Daisy and Iolanta were a little unlucky not to win a game, losing 7-5 against one of the opposition pairs. However, the team recovered quickly and proved too strong for Perins next time out, winning 6-0, in a rather one-sided match. Kate, Daisy, Belinda and Lily all won their singles with Kate not conceding a game, a feat she repeated in the doubles with Daisy, while Belinda and Lily also won comfortably. The last fixture against Kings also survived but much of the game was played in a downpour making conditions very difficult. Eight girls braved the deluge without complaint. In the doubles there was success for Hattie and Jess and in the singles Ellie and Lily both won hard-fought matches 4-3 and Iolanta won a little more comfortably 4-2. Overall though, the match score ended 8-4 in favour of Kings. Fortunately, all the squad players managed to play in at least one game, but hopefully next year, if the weather allows, there will be rather more opportunities for them to represent the School.
