William Ransom Primary School in Hitchin has enjoyed more lacrosse success.

Having won the district title for the fourth time in four years, scoring an incredible 63 goals and conceding only six, William Ransom successfully defended their East Region title.

Recent winners at The Comet Sports Awards, they retained their crown at the University of Hertfordshire, scoring 58 goals and only conceding 13.

The title means that they will again be playing at the national finals in June. This will be the third successive time that they have made the nationals and will play against some of the elite teams from around the UK.

William Ransom played some particularly impressive lacrosse during the afternoon, winning their four games during the league stages. They went on to play the semi-final against Essendon which they won 9-3 before playing Brookmans Park in the final.

This was a quick and exciting game with the score remaining quite close during the opening few minutes before William Ransom pulled away to end up winning 10-4.

The school were without their lacrosse captain, Alastair Munn, for the afternoon as he was flying out to Egypt.

Alastair was kept informed of the team's success by text message but was not able to get the final news until he had landed in Cairo.

He was obviously delighted that he would be able to play in the nationals and could relax and enjoy the rest of his family holiday!

The team was Sam Draper, Gabriel Brooker, Ben Smith, Andrew Foster, Georgina Mumford, Claire McQue, Anna Hall and Gaia Brooker.
