Year 8 netball team wins silver
Over the weekend of Friday 13 to Sunday 15 May our Year 8 netball team travelled to Condover Hall in Shropshire for the annual netball tour.
The weekend provides the girls with fixtures against both schools and netball clubs from across the UK, as well as the opportunity to take part in several team-building activities, including high ropes, abseiling, archery and the gladiator wall.
On Saturday the girls played five group matches, winning four and finishing second in the group.
This result took them through to the cup competition on Sunday. Here they played the winners and the team placed third in group 2 from the Saturday group rounds.
Winning both games meant they were now in the cup final against opposition Ribble Valley Netball Club. The girls played an outstanding game of netball, which was tied at half time. Unfortunately the final score was 9-7, with Charles Darwin School finishing as runners up overall after a weekend of fantastic netball.
The girls were a real credit to the school both on and off the court. We look forward to our next tour. Mrs Wray and Miss Curwood
