Wednesday 14th March – Swanmore and District Netball Rally
This afternoon, our school netball team took part in the annual Netball Rally which was held at Swanmore Primary School. It is a great afternoon of sport with games against the other schools in the area and certificates and medals awarded at the end of the competition.
The team had been selected by Mrs Peach and I from our Wednesday evening club and we were very much looking forward to the afternoon and playing the matches. The team looked very professional in their white polo shirts, skorts (skirts and shorts) and red fleeces.
We played against Curdridge in our first match and we played very well – good defending and attacking. Unfortunately we lost 3-1. This was the same story in our match against Swanmore. However, we played exceptionally well against Wickham and drew 3-3, with great comments from our opponents and supporters on how well our team had played. Overall, we came 5th out of 6 teams and the team should feel proud of themselves for this.
It was a fantastic afternoon of netball – as usual, the team were a real credit to the school and I enjoyed taking them and watching them play. Well done to Robert, Abby, Libby, Katy, Ciara, Kirsten and Jenny. Thank you to the parents and grandparents who came to watch and a special thanks to our governor Sandi Anning who gave up her afternoon to support the team.
