Huge congratulations to the 1st VII who are County Netball Champions.
Oakham’s U19 netball team are celebrating after winning all 6 games at the County Tournament to secure their place in the Regional Tournament for the 10th year running.
The girls sailed through the tournament undefeated, winning the competition with 6 wins.
The team were victorious against Wigston (22-3), Hinckley Academy (21-3), Ratcliffe College, (15-5), Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth (14-10) and Uppingham (14-12).
Director of Netball and Superleague champion, Lauren Nicholls said, “I am thrilled with the result. The team really grew throughout the tournament and the shooters were unstoppable. I was really pleased with the quality of netball on show and now we begin working towards regional finals.”
This achievement follows the U14’s and U16’s recent County successes and means that all 3 teams are now through to the Regional Finals.
Oakham Sport teams have an enviable record of regularly reaching the regionals and the latter stages of the nationals, which is testament to Oakham School’s elite sport programme and the commitment of both the players and the staff.
