Success in golf, rugby and netball has delivered an exciting start to the sporting year.
The fourth Mill Hill Golf Championships for the Taylor Salver took place at Hendon Golf Club on Wednesday 17th October 2012. It was a great day for the London Golf Academy with 16 of the best golfers at the School competing on this occasion.
Nick Marlborough (Murray) won the Junior Prize, Rishi Khiroya (School) won the Nett prize with Tom Harley (Murray) runner up. The runner up in the main trophy was Sam Sherwood (Atkinson) and the overall winner was Priya Pankhania (Priestley). Priya follows Chris Alexander, Charlie Layhani and Adam Rossington as the winner of the Taylor Salver which was presented to the School by the Maunder Taylor family. A presentation was made in the Clubhouse by international golfer, Mrs Jane Rees, who spoke about the positive future ahead for the London Golf Academy at Mill Hill School.
Director of Golf, Dean Halford, praised all the golfers on their efforts and their impeccable etiquette on the day and thanked Mr Barnes and Mr Searby for their help as well as Hendon Golf Club for their hospitality.
Congratulations go to Aston Lester (School) who has been accepted onto the EPDG (Elite Player Development Group) at Saracens. This could well lead to a place in the full academy so we look forward to hearing how he gets on in the coming months.
The Mill Hill U16A XV have had a successful first half of term only losing one game. Just recently, the team (along with the 1st XV) played at Old Albanians Rugby Club under floodlights winning 17-15 in a very closely fought match.
The U15 netball team recently competed in the Barnet District netball tournament. They played a number of different schools from the local area and we re delighted to report that Mill Hill won the tournament. The girls’ performance throughout was fantastic, playing with confidence and supporting each other on court. A special mention has to go to Carlota Franques (McClure) and Yasmin Denli (Cedars), both Fourth Form pupils, who also participated and showed great potential.
