It is certainly an exciting time for sport at Oakham – with three teams set to play in National Finals over the coming weeks!
Both the U14 and U19 netball teams have recently qualified for the National Finals, following impressive wins in their regional tournaments. The U19 squad claimed the Midlands title, as well as their spot in the National Finals. Whilst the U14 squad narrowly missed their top spot by just one goal in extra time (14-15), they also secured a place at the National Finals, which takes place on 17th March, as regional runners up.
The Girls U18 hockey team have also won their place in the National Finals, which takes place at the Olympic Park in London on 28th February & 1st March.
These teams all follow on from Oakham’s senior boys indoor hockey team, who recently ranked second in the country at the National Finals.
Director of Sport, Iain Simpson said, “We are all incredibly proud that our players and teams are repeatedly representing the School in national finals – for a range of different sports. It’s a real testament to the quality of sport that is consistently played at Oakham.”
