Sporting News – Netball this Week


Sport News this Week: 

Our Sports teams in Junior and Senior School have been extremely busy this last week, participating in several fixtures both home and away. To kick things off the Year 5 & 6 girls dodged the bad weather on Friday afternoon to play against Bootham School. It was a mixed bag of results this week, but the girls’ resilience and positive attitudes remained consistent throughout. 

10 March Vs Bootham Junior 

Despite the initial flutter of snow in the morning, by afternoon the skies had cleared, and Year 5 & 6 were up and ready for their game. They hosted Bootham School for two very close matches, resulting in a draw for the A team and a narrow one goal loss for the B team. 

13 March Vs Huntington School 

On Monday morning the U15 York Schools League had a new finalist to announce. Our U15 team played a well contested semi-final against Huntington School which saw them take a 3-18 win. It was a fantastic performance by all and the perfect way to showcase the teams’ strengths and hard work. Well done on making the final!  

14 March Vs Cundall Manor 
By Tuesday the unrelenting weather made a comeback, but that was no match for the U14 and U15 teams. In a fantastic achievement both teams were victorious and relished playing in the rain against worthy opponents, Cundall Manor. It was a fierce competition and the travelling side put up a good fight! Thank you for visiting us. 

15 March House Netball Competition
College had their heads firmly in the game on Wednesday’s House Netball competition. Despite the competitive nature of the event, all College I and II players showed admirable team spirit and an enjoyable afternoon was had by all. There could only be one winning team however, and it was the turn of Terry to relish in the glory! Great efforts everyone, as always it is fantastic to show everyone taking part and doing their best for their House. 

15 March Vs Terrington Hall School
Also taking to the courts on Wednesday was the U12 and U13 players. Congratulations to Terrington Hall on taking the win and allowing our girls to endure a fantastic learning experience. Everyone played their best and were extremely gracious in defeat. POMs were Margherita and Peggy for their brilliant efforts.
