On the 11th of March this year we, the year 8 netball team, went to the County Cup at Oundle School. We were able to go after an amazing victory, earlier in March at the County Plate. SW, CA, LB, PB, GG, ET, AT and GP went and represented our school outstandingly.
We won our first match, thanks to all teammates motivating each other to play our best. Despite the wind being especially strong that day, we all put in to practice what we had been working on and the improvements we aimed to make from the County Plate. Working together, utilising the shooting triangle in attack, and quickly getting the ball down the court in defence, we won our next few matches.
A few matches into the tournament, we played against Winchester House. It was a really tough but close game. We played incredibly, working together and using the channels to quickly bring the ball up the court. Sadly we ended up losing that match. This however did not discourage us in the matches ahead. We continued to strive to play our best knowing goals were key, winning all our other games!
After our last game, we had a nervous wait for the results. We came first! Winning on goal average. An amazing day with amazing play from everyone. Big thank yous to the coaches Miss Stone and Miss Wade for taking us and coaching us throughout the day and the last year!
