Congratulations to the U16 Netball team who were clear winners in the recent County tournament, winning all of their six matches to secure a place in the Regionals tournament.
In the initial group rounds, the girls played against Robert Smyth (22-4), Thomas Estley (20-0), Hinckley (23-3), Catmose (23-5), Lutterworth (11-5) and Leicester Grammar (7-4).
They then went on to win comfortably against Uppingham (11-9) in the semi-final.
The final will be against Leicester Grammar School at De Montfort Queen Elizabeth Centre on 5 December, and this will determine who goes through to the Regional tournament in 1st or 2nd place.
Graduate Sports Fellow Isobel Beighton said, “An amazing result! The girls performed well consistently throughout the tournament and the wins were well-deserved. We are looking forward to the final against Leicester Grammar in December."
Oakham has a strong record of reaching the Netball finals in all age categories and this is a testament to both the quality of coaching at the School as well as the dedication and commitment to the game by the pupils.
