Lincoln wins sports exchange

The Ashburton College girls’ hockey 1st XI were unable to get the win against Lincoln High School, losing 5-1.

Ashburton College battled it out against Lincoln High School in their annual sports exchange yesterday.

Lincoln narrowly took the honours on the day, winning 8-7.

It was Lincoln’s dominance on the paddock that won them the day, with all their wins coming in hockey, football and rugby, while picking up their only indoor win in the senior boys’ basketball.

Like last year, it came down to the golf result, with Lincoln’s 3-0 victory sealing the deal.

Guardian reporter Jaime Pitt-MacKay was out capturing some of the action.
