December 2012: Haslingden High girls claim East Lancs tag rugby crown


TAG rugby playing girls from Haslingden High School were delighted when they became East Lancashire champions.

The success for Years 9 and 10 came hot on the heels of the school’s Years 7 and 8 team being runners-up to St Augustine’s the previous night.

PE teacher Erika Wilson said: “The Year 9s and 10s were anticipating some hard games as the winners of the U13s competition – St Augustine’s – had brought along two teams.

“Their warm up game was against Woodhey, which proved an easy win and the second game was against St Augustine’s. They took us to a 1-1 draw.”
