Mid 2013-14 Season Report
This season has had a tough start for the women's squad. Both the Blues and the Swifts have been
riddled with injuries from the start of the season and they have shown a lot perseverance and strength in
dealing with the problems faced.
The Swifts team has had an incredibly strong
season, convincingly winning every match so far, including a highlight one goal victory in their first encounter of the year with Cambridge.
They have a lot of fresh new talent, which have been led well by the more experienced members of the team. They have become a cohesive unit that are looking at becoming one of the strongest Swift teams we have had for a while. Likewise, the Blues having faced a large loss of players from the previous year have got some new faces that have slotted in seamlessly and of course some older ones remain too! A very shaky start to the season saw the girls’ confidence falter but having found their stride pulled out some strong performances and wins.
The highlight so far was their 9-7 victory over Exeter given their unjustified and hugely upsetting loss to
the same team, just a few months before at the
very start of the season. Enthusiasm for the second half of the season is now evident at training and you can tell how excited they all are for the gear up to Varsity 2014 in the way they push themselves in fitness and in the energy they bring, even to the coldest of Monday morning sessions!
Welcome to Oxford Women's Lacrosse! We're one of Oxford's largest womens teams and across the university we're
known for being outgoing and sociable, but also hard working. As one of the top lacrosse universities in the country
we have a successful blues (1st) team and a further successful swifts (2nd) team.
The squad has a really relaxed atmosphere and anybody is welcome to come along to training at the beginning of the season.
