U14 Netball County Champions!

U14 Netball County Champions!

On Monday the U14 Netball squad travelled to Cheltenham Ladies’ College to play in the Gloucestershire County tournament where 19 schools were hosted. We were in a group of 5 schools and beat Katharine Lady Berkeley’s School 10-1, The Cotswold School 8-0, Bournside 11-2 and the High School for Girls 10-2.

The girls went through as group winners and played a strong Stroud High team in the quarter-finals where they won 7-4. They progressed to the semi-finals and played Dean Close, winning 6-3 in a tight game. The final hurdle to the trophy was Wycliffe, who the girls beat 8-3.

Head of Netball, Miss Poppy Hoskins commented, “The team played outstandingly and I cannot fault them for their attitude and enthusiasm. Abbie Whybrow (3rd, Ch) and India Turner (3rd, W) in particular stepped into defence; their energetic, albeit slightly unorthodox, style of netball was incredibly effective at breaking down the opposition’s attacking play. Meg Knight (3rd, Q) was a strong force in the middle with Beth Jenkins (3rd, Q) and Katya Jennings (3rd, Ch) working well in the shooting circle together. A true squad effort and a sign of excellent and exciting netballers moving through College right now.”
