Year 9 Netball

Year 9 Netball girls are amazing!

On Tuesday 2nd May 2017 our Year 9 Netball team went to their annual tournament but with only 6 players instead of the usual 7 as one of the team was unwell.

The girls played 7 back to back 8 minute games and were playing against squads who had reserves so they could rotate their players and give each player a rest. Our girls did not have the luxury. Despite this, they dug deep into their physical reserves and played their hearts out, beating Shelley B 7-0, Moorend 2-1, Colne Valley 2-0 and holding the other teams to close scores.

Achieving a final place position of 5th place out of 8 teams was exceptional for any team of 6 players but these girls also had a fantastic attitude throughout the competition and refused to concede or drop their heads. One of our proudest sporting moments girls and I was proud to be there with you.
