USA Sports Tour
During the summer holidays, the MSJ Sports Tour visited Los Angeles and New York. Thirteen girls took part and represented MSJ in a total of six matches: two Lacrosse, two Hockey and two Netball.
The sporting highlight of the tour was a Hockey match played at Princeton University against the Bermuda national team. Our girls managed to keep control for most of this exciting game, with a goal during the last few seconds securing a 3 – 2 victory for MSJ! During the tour all the girls played all three sports, even though several had never experienced a competitive match in that sport before, demonstrating true team work and determination to win.
Rather more relaxing were visits to Universal Studios and Venice Beach. Cycling through Central Park was a very popular pastime and girls were visibly moved by a visit to the poignant 9/11 memorial and tribute centre.
