The Form 4 A Team took part in the annual Netball Tournament at Grasshoppers RFC on 15 November.
Ten schools entered the competition and were split into two groups of five in a round robin format. We were drawn in a tough group and faced the following opponents.
Ravenscourt Park (4-7 loss)
Falkner House (2-4 loss)
Bassett House (5-0 win)
The Roche (5-0 loss)
After a nervous start the team began to settle and gain in confidence. The girls passed accurately and strongly, communicating well as a team. We still need to remember to move forwards and never stand still as this allows our opponents to intercept. The girls defended well and picked up on any mistakes that were made.
By the second match we gave our opponents a hard fight and were extremely competitive. Falkner House went on to win the entire event so a 4-2 loss in a very close game was admirable. We were far too strong for Bassett House in our next fixture dominating from start to finish in a comfortable 5-0 victory. The passing, movement and shooting was wonderful to watch.
The final match was a little disappointing as the match was a lot closer than the score suggested. However, the girls tried their best throughout and were a credit to the school. They learnt a lot from this experience and should be very proud of their efforts.
