Oakham School Netball Achievements - Winter 2021

Congratulations to the 1st VII, U16 and U14 netball squads for qualifying for the Regional Finals, representing Leicestershire and Rutland.

The U14s were unbeaten in the County round and crowned County Champions. They won all 9 games to secure their place in the Regional Tournament for the 5th year running (with a break in 2020 due to Covid). 

The U16 team were narrowly defeated in the final game of the County round, but they still progress to regional finals as County Runners-up.

Winning all 6 games at the County Tournament, the 1st VII netball team secured their place in the Regional Tournament for the 10th year running. 

The U19 team also progressed to the third round of the Independent Schools’ Netball Cup before being knocked out by Norwich school.

Meanwhile, Evie S and Milly B were selected to attend an England Netball selection camp earlier in the term.

Well done also to the following girls who have been selected in Loughborough Lightning Pathway Squads:
