Year 7 Netball Central Venue Tournament
The Year 7 netball team played stage 2 of Central Venue at The Gilberd School on Wednesday evening. There was great support for each other, with a number of players demonstrating their versatility and skills in playing different positions.
The first match against Thurstable School, saw the girls take an early lead, and hold their nerve when the opposition made a comeback, to win 7-6.
In the second match against Colchester County High School for Girls B team, we won 5-3.
Third and final match of the day against The Gilberd Eagles, a very strong performance by all, with another victory of 9-0.
There was some lovely shooting from Issy and Sofia who work very well together, with some super centre court attacking skills by captain Evie.
