Gasworth pupils into national finals
A STRONG team of six children from Gawsworth Primary School took part in the Cheshire and Warrington lacrosse final after taking first place in the Macclesfield Lacrosse Tournament.
After winning against all three schools in the heat, Gorsey Bank 4-11, St Pauls 4-7 and Woolston 2-9, it meant they qualified for the semifinals.
With great determination and effort they won 13-0 against Marlborough securing them a place in the finals.
After a team talk, a few nervous faces, Gawsworth did what they do best and played to such a high standard against Disley where they triumphed with an almighty score of 11-2!
Gawsworth Primary School Head Teacher, Michael Shaw commented: “It is a fantastic achievement for the lacrosse team to have reached the national finals for the second year running and testament to the hard work that they have put into the sport all through winter.”
The school’s lacrosse team will now go through to the National finals in Sheffield on the 25th June 2017.
