U14 netballers are county champions!
23 November 2015
The U14 Netball squad was victorious at the County Netball tournament at Leicester Grammar School. They will now progress to the regional tournament in January, along with the U19 girls who also recently secured their place in the next stage of the competition.
The Oakham team beat Ratcliffe College, Catmose College and Uppingham convincingly in the group stages, and went on to meet Thomas Estley Community College in the quarter-finals. After a resounding win, the team faced Loughborough Grammar in a gripping semi-final match, from which they emerged triumphant.
Kibworth was the opposition in the final, and the teams were evenly matched, leading to a draw at full time. Both teams then had to play 2 minutes each way, and Oakham eventually took the lead with a final score of 11-8.
Michelle Northcott, Assistant Director of Sport (Girls) said, “I was so proud of the girls; they had tough matches in the semi-finals and final, but they showed determination and coped well under pressure. The hard work certainly starts now as they prepare themselves for the next part of the journey to the Nationals!”
