The U19 netball team had a successful afternoon at the County round of the National Schools’ Netball Tournament winning a place in the Regional Tournament.
The girls powered their way through the round robin competition, winning 7 of their 8 matches. They played against Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth (18-6), Leicester Grammar (15-2), Hinckley Academy (19-3), Loughborough High (10-8), Robert Smyth (16-1). They conceded one close match against Uppingham (5-7) but then continued their winning performances against Beauchamp (11-7) and Ratcliffe (12-7).
Director of Netball Mrs Lauren Nicholls said, “I am very proud of the team. They have worked hard and put in a lot of effort to achieve such great results. We are looking forward to the re-match against Uppingham in the final, which takes place in December.”
Oakham School now has a team competing in both the U16 and U19 age categories of the County finals with the U16 squad remaining unbeaten so far in this competition.
