Kent U18 Girls Rugby Win
Sutton Valence Girls Rugby Squad are delighted with their win in the Kent Schools Rugby 7's U18 tournament on Monday 5th March 2012, hosted by Benenden school. The 'round robin' tournament was between Benenden, Mascalls School, Maidstone Grammar, The Judd and Sutton Valence.
The squad of Amy Wombwell (Captain), Amy Baxter, Emma Baxter, Lauren Cansick, Hannah Davies, Nanki Dogra, Phoebe Fryer, Kaya Jago, Betsy Nally, Sophia Schultz, Marie Schobinger and Sophie Taylor have been training with Lindsay Mitchell, Maths teacher and Jacques Van Vuuren, 2nd XV coach, since September but this is the highlight of the season so far.
Sutton Valence's first game was against Maidstone Grammar School, who in their first match had posted an impressive victory over Benenden, however this did not deter the girls who won 20 - 5. The following game, against a Mascalls side that contained a Kent player, saw an impressive victory of 39 - 0. In their toughest challenge they then faced last year's champions, the Judd Schoo,l and after a tough battle Sutton Valence girls came out 12 - 5 winners.
Lindsay Mitchell said, "I am so pleased for the girls. They have all worked hard in training and throughout the competition showed commitment and great teamwork. Their victory was thoroughly deserved."
Unfortunately for Maidstone Grammar an injury prevented their final match against Benenden being played, but Sutton Valence came through as clear winners, being the only team that was unbeaten.
