The U19 1st VII Netball squad recently competed in their first tournament of the season . The squad included, Megan Gareh (captain) (U6GLA), Amy Russon (vice-captain) (U6DUT), Annie Powell (U6BRD), Ellie Dooley (U6LES), Sophie Cliff (U6WER), Abi Fisher (U6GRO), Olivia Hughes (L6GRO) and Beth Horsfield (L6LES).
The tournament was competed in a round robin format with five teams playing each other over the course of the evening. A dominant performance against Bishop Heber High School in the first match was a great start to the evening with King’s running out comprehensive winners. It was a King’s v King’s match up in the second round in what proved to be a hugely entertaining match due to the fantastic attacking play from both teams.
The third match against Bishops’ Blue Coat High School proved the most challenging for the squad as they came up against a really strong team who passed fast and accurately. However, perseverance and composure throughout the match proved key as the team managed a narrow win.
The team continued their fantastic form into the final two matches of the tournament against the Queens School and Abbey Gate College, conceding only 7 goals and scoring an astonishing 26 goals in both fixtures.
This was a fantastic way to start the season and proved ideal preparation for the upcoming County and National Schools Tournaments. Well done girls!
