On Wednesday 17 January 2018, ten girls (and two determined teachers) left Truro very early and headed off to Bryanston’s 22nd Prep School netball tournament.
The girls arrived full of excitement and ready to experience one of the region’s biggest netball tournaments. With 24 teams from the South West, the girls were looking forward to a full day of netball.
They had some strong competition in their group, but the girls weren’t phased. Jess worked hard in defence, intercepting many passes and gaining possession for her team. In the morning, the girls finished a highly respectable third in their group, which meant that they progressed to play in the bowl competition in the afternoon.
Evie H had an extremely strong tournament at centre, playing well both defensively and in attack, and helping the team to win their semi-final in the bowl competition. Next, the girls faced Highfield School in the final. It was a highly competitive game, which the girls narrowly lost.
A huge congratulations to Evie M, Jess, Ysolde, Evie H, Gwen, Elowyn, Amelie, Phoebe, Eleanor and Ankita. What an outstanding performance from you all! In particular to Evie H, who was awarded with a Bryanston water bottle for her excellent matchplay.
