Oakham School has seen outstanding netball success this term with the teams achieving fantastic results in various netball tournaments.
At the East Midlands Regional School’s tournament Oakham’s U16’s won 1st place, U19’s finished 2nd place and U14’s claimed 3rd place. Oakham’s U14’s narrowly missed out on qualifying for Nationals.
Lauren Nicholls, Director of Netball at Oakham School, said: “I’m really proud of all of our netballers. Playing at the Regionals Finals tournament is a fantastic experience and to have all three teams finish in the top three in the East Midlands is amazing.”
Evie, captain of the U16 team, said: “We have a good team spirit, and we were pleased to come second in the County round, so to then win all our matches and come first at the Regionals was great. We all encourage each other and enjoy ourselves as well as competing.”
The 1st VII and U16 Netball squads represented the School at National Schools’ finals. The U16’s finished 7th overall in the country and the U19’s finished 11th. The 1st VII have also had an unbeaten season in the league.
