Netball Team through to Kent Finals

The Year 13 netball team entered the Kent School's U19 Tournament on Wednesday 22nd September at Rainham School for Girls. The tournament had twenty-seven schools competing in four groups for progression through to the finals.

After arriving just in time due to the traffic that morning, the girls faced an experienced Bromley High School team, to which they had a slow start but came back to be narrowly beaten 11-9 (next time will be a different story). They then went on to draw one game against Sevenoaks and win the next four convincingly against The Judd School, Walthamstow Hall, Kent college Canterbury and St. Joseph Williamson. These results meant they qualified second in their group so will progress to the Kent Finals Day on the 27th November.

A big congratulations to the girls as this was still only their second fixture together and they have made so much progress! 

The player of the tournament was Nicole Udu for being a role model in terms of behavior, vice captaincy and a goal shooter of consistently high accuracy and availability.
