U13 Netballers Are Runners Up At The ISA Netball Nationals

21 Mar

The U13 Netball team brought home the Silver medal after competing in the ISA Netball Nationals on Wednesday 20 March at King’s High School.

The U13 Netball Girls have made excellent progress this year. March has been a busy month for netball, with the team finishing as runners up in the Midlands ISA Tournament just last week. That qualified the girls for the ISA Netball Nationals which took place on Wednesday 20 March at King’s High School.

24 teams had qualified for the Nationals and Princethorpe’s girls were superb. They played with resilience, pace and passion, earning praise from their coach. After the tournament, Head of Girls’ Games, Carly Walton, said, "We could not be prouder of how hard these girls have worked this season and of their achievement today. We had an incredible day of netball. Finishing as runners up nationally is a superb result. Congratulations to them all."

The girls finished top of the table in the Group stage after a run of super results. After warming up with a 4-4 draw against Holme Grange School, the girls’ confidence and the scorelines just grew and grew. They beat Ipswich High School 8-5, Shoreham College 11-3, Abbot’s Hill School 10-9 and Abbey Gate College 15-3.

That took them through to the Cup where the team confidently saw off Lingfield College 15-4 in the semi-final. They faced Scarisbrick Hall in the final, who were a much tougher test. It was a very tight match where despite their determination, it wasn’t to be. The girls came away as runners up bringing home the Silver medal.
