On the 18 January the Wallace Prep hockey team went to Laurelhill Sports Zone and played against the following teams-PondPark, Downshire, Lisburn Central and Ballynahinch. The girls’ team defeated Lisburn Central 2-0 and drew all their other matches. The girls hoped the school minibus would collect them so they could go for a treat, sadly it couldn’t be! The girls came back happy, smiling and determined to win their next set of matches.
Cross Country Success
On Thursday 19 January the cross country runners went to Musgrave Park to do their final race of approximately 1200m. The first race was the girls which turned out to be their best, with Victoria Hunter coming 2nd and Rebecca Wallace following in 3rd, with their team coming 4th overall.
After the girls race it was then the boys turn to run. It was another tough race, but Christopher Quinn still managed to finish 17th out of 104 boys.
Everyone competed really well despite it being very muddy course and we all enjoyed ourselves.
