U19s play in county netball
On Wednesday 6th Nov the U19 squad travelled to Stamford to play in the county netball round. It was an extremely cold day but dry, which was the main thing! All the girls worked hard throughout the day and with some incredible shooting from our awesome attackers Bridee and Juliet the games were all incredibly close or we won extremely comfortably. There was also some fantastic defending on the day from Liv H, Ellie S, Tomiya and captain Jo M and the girls in attack , Yasmin, Courtney and Charlotte B worked well around the circle and down court to safely deliver the ball to the shooters, which at times became incredibly challenging against some top class opposition.
Unfortunately the day did not go our way and we finished overall 4th out of 8 schools, with only losing two games, one of them by one goal and drawing with the team in 2nd place.
A huge well done to all the girls who played and represented the Academy:
Jo M – voted best player
Bridee K – voted best player
For some of these girls this will be their last time representing the Academy in a schools' qualifying competition. They truly are a very talented and special group of netballers, who the department will miss. They are an incredible aspirational to our younger students and a very dedicated set of students who we hope will continue to inspire and play when they leave us at the end of the year.
Thank you ladies……..
