ALICE Ottley's girls have once again been setting the standard across the sporting spectrum.

Worcester's superstars of the future have won through to finals of major lacrosse and netball tournaments while Kay Scott struck gold at national weight-lifting championships.

The under 15 lacrosse team won the Welsh Rally tournament in Monmouth and then went on to bag the prestigious Midlands title in Bedford.

The school's outstanding crop of netball talent is also bearing fruit after the under 18s won a place in the final of the County Championships. Their final appearance earned them a slot in the West Midlands Final due to be held at the end of January.

Meanwhile, Scott, a member of Evesham Rowing Club, showed her versatility by starring at weight-lifting. She won a silver area medal and then a gold national medal for her 40kg lift in the National 'Clean and Jerk' Championships.
