Year 8 Netball Team
After a strong season, the Year 8 netball team went to their annual netball tournament on Wednesday 16 March.
The improvement that the girls have made as a team is clear to see. They have a great attitude to training, support each other and have high expectations of themselves.
Our first game was against Kirkburton Middle School and although we had the majority of possession we struggled to convert this to goals. Kirkburton scored against us, but the girls did not capitulate and achieved an equalising goal in the last 30 seconds of the game. Our next game was a well deserved victory over Moorend before we played Huddersfield Grammar School where we conceded our only loss. The girls went on to draw the next three games and played extremely well throughout, making progress in every game they played.
Only the top two teams went through to the Semi-Finals and it was a tense wait to see where we were positioned out of the seven teams in our section. We had the same points as another school and so final position was determined by goal difference, resulting in us achieving a fantastic fourth place.
I am extremely proud of our girls. They have committed to training every week throughout the season and have worked very hard to improve themselves as individuals and as a team. Their attitude on and off the court is outstanding and they are fantastic ambassadors for our school. (Report by Mrs Ketteringham)
