U12 Netball team claim Runners Up spot
The U12A netball team had their first major tournament of the season at Churchers college on Monday. Although the snow had cleared and the temperatures had warmed up, playing conditions were pretty tricky with wind and squally rain showers.
The team started a little slow, resulting in a draw in their first game with Barrow Hills. This certainly woke them up and they then went on to win back to back games against KES Southampton and PGS. By now their game was starting to flow and they were adjusting well to some tight defence by all the teams. Their match against the Churchers A team resulted in another draw and then they met St Swithuns. Unfortunately the whistle went too early in this game where they recorded their only loss of the tournament by one goal. A resounding win against KES Stroud ended their tournament and they eagerly awaited the overall result. For this year we had had one draw too many which gave us the Runners Up position. Considering that this was the most they have been tested all season it was a great tournament which fully prepares them for the District tournament next week.
Well done girls, great play by all of you!
