Netball District Tournament

Year 9 District Tournament

On Wednesday 22nd March, our Year 9 netball teams took part in the District Tournament. We had five matches to play and were determined to win them all, after our challenging netball season! Our first game was against Aylesbury High School and within the first minute we had scored. The girls played so well with some fantastic movement in the circle and accurate shots from Maddie, Mia and Miranda. We won that game comfortably and then beat Thornton College, followed by The Royal Latin. Our final two games against Buckingham were the most challenging and the girls had to dig in deep with their skills; a few times panicking and loosing possession too easily. Nevertheless, they won the game 3-2!

With some excellent defending by Tash, Meg and Katie – and Anaya, Alana and Imogen all working really hard in attack to feed the ball into the circle – our final game was a ‘must win’ against John Colet School. The girls really started to feel the pressure and went 1-0 down very early on. We then pulled it back to 1-1 in the second half, scoring a last minute goal to win 2-1!

I am immensely proud of the girls and the amazing progress they have made this half term. Winners of the B League District final!
