We are extremely proud of our Year 8A and 9A netball teams who spent the weekend from 23rd- 25th September competing in the GSA netball tournament at Condover Hall in Shrewsbury against 19 Independent Girls’ schools.
The girls were an absolute delight to accompany and returned twice the players they were.
The Year 9 team fought hard to achieve a place in the cup knockout and were just beaten by Tormead school from 3rd place overall. They secured positions ahead of the following schools and, although disappointed not to have medalled, deserve praise for their eagerness to achieve and their standard of play:
Shrewsbury High Pipers Corner Farnborough Hill Withington Girls School
St Catherine’s Bramley B St Martha’s School St Mary’s Shaftesbury
The team’s tactics are now certainly advanced, having taken advice from Sarah Bayman (current England Netball captain).
Our Year 8 Team achieved 3rd Place in the Plate tournament, just being pipped to the finals by St Swithens, who eventually snatched first place.
We look forward to seeing the teams compete throughout the rest of the season.
