ARGENTINIAN SPORTS TOUR COMES TO ROUGEMONT

Rougemont was honoured to host a recent sports delegate from Argentina on their recent sports tour.

Hockey girls and rugby boys from St Luke’s College in Argentina have been on a sports tour of the UK with one of the stops at Rougemont School.  Here are our sports reports:

Hockey 1st XI

The opening game of the season for the 1st XI Hockey after just one training session under their belts. Rougemont faced a well drilled Argentinian side playing their final game of the season. Despite this, the contest was fairly even in terms of skill level, but the visitors had the edge in team cohesion. Rougemont battled well but lost the game 0-4. It was a great opening to the season and a delight to host St Luke’s, who are welcome back any time.

Rugby 1st XV

Rougemont boys gave a sterling performance on the pitch during their first game of the academic year.  Our boys fought well against a very strong Argentinian side.  Whilst the match ended in a loss for Rougemont, the boys all agreed it was an amazing experience and look forward to welcoming St Luke’s again in the future!
