The netball teams have been incredibly busy with three successive matches over three weeks. The first of these was against Eltham College – our first home game of the season. It was a challenging game on both courts; for the B team, unfortunately our gameplay was not quite enough for us to beat our guests on the day, despite the excellent energy and effort with which the girls played. For the A team, it was a successful game, with the girls ending the four quarters triumphant. The following week, both teams played away against Langley Park Boys’ School. The Year 13 girls had faced their opponents twice last season, and so were especially keen to play them again. The B team drew 10-10 as our team of nine played consistently for each of the four quarters. For the A team, despite their brilliant teamwork and direction from captains, they were not able to defeat the hosts after they achieved an early advantage.
However, both teams will be playing against Langley Park again in a few months’ time, and we hope that training in the meantime will see us achieve a win. A week later, the A team had their first friendly against Newstead Wood. The scores after each quarter were very close, with the game ending in a 10-10 draw.
Well done to all the girls involved in these fixtures.
