For the third time in four years, the Godolphin First Lacrosse team have been crowned U19 National Champions. �This is an amazing record and we are extremely proud of the girls� said Mrs Samantha Price, Head.

The senior tournament was fiercely contested by both the Godolphin first and second teams and the semi-final was a contest between Godolphin Seconds and Guildford High , with the final being between Godolphin Firsts and Lady Eleanor Holles. Godolphin won in the last minute of the game, coming back from 3-4 down to win 5-4.

Miss Storm Trentham, who has coached all three of the winning teams said, �It goes to show that if you have a goal, put in the hard work and make a few sacrifices along the way, you can achieve whatever you put your mind to. I have never seen such outstanding performances from a Godolphin team as I did last Saturday and the composure of the girls in the final, even when 0-2, was incredible. I am extremely proud of the team.�

As a result of the tournament, Godolphin is now ranked Number One and Number Three in the country for lacrosse.
