High-scoring sorority

Four sets of sisters have played a key role in securing a striking score line for the 1st XI girls’ hockey team at Wisbech Grammar School.

Team captain Charlotte Lemon (18) has scored 16 of the 49 goals taken by the team during the term – and her personal  tally is twice the total number of goals scored against the side.

During the season the awesome foursome of sister partnerships and other team members  have played 14 matches, winning 10, including victories against King’s, Ely, Wymondham College, King’s, Peterborough, Stamford High and the Perse Girls, drawing three and losing only one.

Charlotte has been assisted in her efforts by sister Susanna (15), who has also doubled up as under-16 captain, and three other sets of siblings:  Charlotte Hay (16) and Georgina (15);  Saskia Cooper (16) and Francesca Cooper (14) and the Rosier family – Harriet (17), Polly (15) and Beth (14).

Girls’ physical education teacher Mrs Jane Reavell, who has coached the side with Miss Sara Harris, said:  “This is probably one of the most successful seasons ever.   Charlotte has been an excellent captain and has included everybody.   Francesca and Beth were considerably younger when they were brought into the side, but they were made to feel part of the family.”
