24th January 2020
On Wednesday 22nd January, our U11 and U13 Netball Teams travelled to Bryanston School in Dorset to participate in a netball tournament against over 40 prep schools.
The U11 team had a tough draw taking on Millfield followed by equally strong Cheam. They were 2-1 up against Millfield (who went on to be the overall runners up) with 5 minutes left to go but then a flurry of interceptions in our centre pass saw them lose 5-2.
However, the U11 team (pictured left) did not let their heads go down and they went on to win the following six matches in the day against: St Swithun’s, Sandroyd, Truro Prep, Clayesmore, Walhampton and Westbourne House! The girls were crowned winners of the vase competition which they were presented with in Friday’s assembly. Well done to all of you who played, you were superb!
The U13 also had an incredibly tough draw and the number of 12 and 13 year old girls over the height of 5 ft 9 was incredible! They also played seven games and learnt how to lose yesterday(!). They showed remarkable resilience throughout the tournament and did not let their spirits dampen. Well done to all of you.
