30 Apr Netball News
Well done to our Year 6 girls netball team who made it to the semi-finals in the annual Overton Grange netball tournament. The girls played excellent netball, worked incredibly well together and were very gracious toward their opponents. Their hard work paid off, winning three of their five qualifying matches; drawing one and losing one. Despite the rain, the girls kept their heads up and were in good spirits for the semi-final. Although their netball skills were excellent and the atmosphere tense during the semi-final match, they were beaten by just one goal and managed to gain 3rd place! Well done girls, your commitment and hard work has not gone unnoticed!
On Saturday we had to wake up at 7am and get to Overton Grange School by 8.30am. We were playing a netball tournament which was very exciting for us as we had never played one before. We were joined by our team mates and friends and we are very thankful for this fun opportunity. There were five matches in total, and to get to the semi-finals we had to win at least three. Thankfully we won three and drew one! It was very exciting to know that we got into the semi-finals – we were hysterical when we found out! Thank you to Mrs Jules and Miss Alexander for being motivating and great coaches. By Madison and Annabel – Chestnut.
