A late but well-deserved piece about the Selwyn Mixed Netball team by Amber Morgan.
Having remained unbeaten throughout Lent term, Selwyn achieved top place in Division 1. This is the first time this has happened since at least 2003 when online records begin. With a tight-knit team spanning from first to fourth year, they have gone from strength to strength in the past couple of years under the captaincy of Laurence Moscrop, Will Scott and now Amber Morgan.
Following the league win, the team competed in May’s mixed netball cuppers tournament. The sun was shining down as the team easily progressed through to the quarter-finals, beating all of the other teams in their group. However, in a tense semi-final match, Selwyn were beaten 11-7 by Trinity, who went on to win the tournament.
With some excellent first years joining the team this year, hopes are high for the winning streak to continue under the guidance of next year's captain, Carla Hill. ... See MoreSee Less
Selwyn mixed lacrosse team played their last match of the season against Jesus this weekend. As the current leaders of the league, we know this would be a tough game but to make the challenge even greater, we had a team of just 8 players against their squad of 14. Regardless, the game got off to a great start with Selwyn putting pressure on the ball to force interceptions and collect ground balls. Awesome turn-overs by Rachel Eatough and Hiro Fudeuchi helped to keep us in the game, and a beautiful trio of passes resulted in one of the few goals of the term. Meanwhile, Jesus continued to pass the ball well with a number of experienced players and moved past our defence to score goal on goal. At half time the score was 6-1 to Jesus and a decision was made to take this as full time score and play a friendly. Jesus donated us two players to even out numbers and before we knew it Selwyn was on fire; awesome drives down the pitch from Matt Zhang matched with well-timed moves by Abi Thellusson resulted in two further Selwyn goals. Whilst the match was not a win for the scoreboard, it was one of the best matches we've played and a great way to finish the season!
