We were delighted to take our U11 IAPS team to the Regional Netball qualifier at Queen Anne’s on Thursday. This year there was a record number of entries, a total of 38 netball teams, and some stiff competition.
We had an absolutely fantastic day and played plenty of netball despite being challenged by increasingly windy weather. Undeterred, the girls adapted their game play fantastically and our shooters remained on form in the face of difficult conditions.
A total of eight matches was played and we had some brilliant wins against Orchard House (5-1), Highfield (4-1), The Abbey Junior (5-3) and Kew College (5-2). We also played a phenomenal match against Kensington, a team who had been unbeaten all day. Our girls really held their own and were unlucky to miss out on another win.
Some extra congratulations should be given to Taya and Lara for achieving player of the match titles. They both performed exceptionally well in their attacking and defending areas on court.
A final thank you to all of the parents who came and supported the girls. We know how much they appreciate you being there and it was a long day so thank you again.
