Our U11 netball team competed in the North London Collegiate School Netball Tournament at the weekend at which there were 21 schools divided into 4 groups. This is the first big tournament that any of them have played in for two years and was a perfect opportunity to get into competing. Stormont School has an enviable reputation for successful netball and although they didn’t win the overall tournament, they came second out of twenty-one schools.
All the girls played brilliantly with determination and lots of skill. After playing all the group matches the Stormont team were re-seeded into the top group for round 2. The team went on to win their four matches, 4-1, 6-0, 6-0 and 4-1; impressive results.
This put us into the Championship for the re-seeded round where we drew 2-2, won 5-0, drew 3-3, won 4-0 and lastly won 6-0. The competition was fierce and it should be pointed out that they didn’t lose one match going through the group rounds.
The Team came 2nd overall, losing out to Newland House who we congratulate on an outstanding win. It is with pride that our team played so well against such talented schools and Katriel A came away with the Most Valuable Player awarded by Mrs P, Head of P.E.
The team, Olivia E, Verity H, Lucy A, Thea H-S, Katriel A, Caitlin F, Lily F, Reva T, Sophie Pearce & River R all played extremely well. Well done girls!
