National Schools’ County runners-up

On Saturday 9th November, the Upper Fourth and Upper Fifth netballers participated in the County Round of the National Schools' tournament. The U16 team had a difficult group, yet outperformed Loreto in their opening game, and followed this with an impressive 12-0 victory over Bolton School. However, they were unlucky to finish 4th in their group despite admirable performances in their remaining matches.

Meanwhile, the U14 team won four out of five of their group games to achieve a semi-final place versus St Monica's. In a fiercely competitive game, we gained a two goal advantage before the break and repeated this is in the second half to take the victory, 7-3.

Due to a spectacular hailstorm, the finals had to be rescheduled for Wednesday afternoon, and I am pleased to report  that with a win against St Gabriel's and defeat to Hulme GS, the girls were named National Schools' County runners-up. They will now represent Greater Manchester in the Regional finals in January.
