Lower School netballers battled terrible weather conditions to place second in a netball tournament held at Condover Hall in Shropshire.
Two teams were fielded from Oakham, both of whom made it through to the Cup play offs after a successful first day of the tournament:
- The U13A team won four out of their five matches beating Akeley Wood B, Kingswinford B, Marches A and RGS B. They narrowly lost to Rochdale Junior A.
- The U13 B team came away with victories over Marches B, Prestfield A, Devizes B and Heathland A as well as with two narrow defeats against Akeley Wood A and RGS A.
Unfortunately the second day of the tournament had to be cancelled, due to the severe weather. This resulted in the Oakham U13A team being automatically awarded second place, based on the results from their performance on the Saturday.
Assistant Director of Sports Mrs Peta Girdwood said, “Well done to all the girls on the tour. They all had a great time and played some fantastic netball in some awful conditions, including strong icy winds as well as white-outs.”
