The U16 Netball team have finished runners up in the County Championships and are through to the Regional Finals.
The girls enjoyed five wins at the tournament, beating Uppingham (11-4), Leicester Grammar (15-1), Lutterworth High School (19-2) and St Martin’s (15-13). They also won the semi-final against Ratcliffe (14-4). The tightly contested final against Loughborough High saw the team narrowly missing out on a win (11-12).
Director of Netball, Lauren Nicholls, said, “It was a hugely successful afternoon with the girls playing some excellent netball. They had a tough start with an injury to one of our players, but the girls picked themselves up and went on to win 5 matches. The standard of play was high, and the team did well to earn their spot in the Reginal Final.
Their achievement follows the U14s’ success, securing a place in the Regional Tournament after being crowned County Champions,
