Our final netball tournament of the year saw two Y7 teams travel to Netherthorpe to take on a field of 13 other teams from schools around Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire.
The A team was led by captain and shooter Laya, who performed to an excellent standard all evening, earning one player of the match award. Laya was supported in the shooting circle by Cerlina, whose impressive performance earned her two player of the match awards. Defensive trio Rose, Amber and Emelia only conceded 5 goals all evening, and Marija and Lily J worked in the middle of the court to keep the ball moving. This tenacious group of girls managed to finish in joint 5th place with 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 narrow losses. Well done to all!
Captain of the B team and defender Mia V lined up with a relatively new team with Kaci, Isabelle and Lexi making up the defensive end and Ashleigh, Mylee, Nifemi and Lainey making up the attacking end. This team worked tirelessly and grew with each game, finishing the evening with a fantastic 3-1 win to finish joint 9th overall. Well done to players of the match Kaci (2), Isabelle, Mia and Lexi.
These outstanding results show that hard work pays off, and that participation leads to personal excellence. Netball club will return in September - make sure you keep Wednesday evenings free!
