Our year 8 girls played their first netball match on Tuesday 13th against Chauncy School.
Understandably, the girls were very nervous to begin with and conceded 4 goals in the first quarter. However, after a quick pep talk and some movement around the court they found their rhythm. With some excellent shots from Shumaila and Sofia, the girls fought their way back to a narrow loss of 6-4 – only conceding 2 goals after the first quarter. Elisse, Isabella and Myleene were fantastic in defence and made it very hard for the Chauncy attack to get anything past them. Isabella was deservedly named player of the match, but all of the girls who took part deserve a big well done. Their next game is in February so watch this space!
