Year 9 Aldershot & District Netball Tournament

We entered our first ever District level competition on Wednesday 27 February with two Year 8 girls rising to the challenge to play for the team also. As we had not entered before we were in Pool B and played 4 matches in a row winning 3 comfortably and drawing the 4th . This meant that we had won the Pool, on goal difference, and played Frensham Heights in the semi-final, winning 5 – 3. We then played Alton Convent again in the final (they were our last match in the pool) where we drew. Nail-biting from all spectators….we started off 1 goal down, 1 all, 2 – 1 down, 3 – 1 down, 3-2 down, 3 all, 4 – 3 UP……and eventually went on to win 8 – 3. Mrs Orford and I would like to congratulate the team on playing so fantastically well as a team. Thank you to the Year 9 girls for making the 2 Year 8 girls so welcome and thank you to the 2 Year 8 girls for playing such outstanding netball. This has been an excellent confidence booster for their ISA National finals on Saturday 7 March. Team: Finli Whiteman, Bethan Gill, Emily Reis, Melissa Hutt, Felicity Briggs, Alexa Rendell, Georgia Pearson with Emily Russell & Sian Healey from Yr 8 playing.
