The U14, U16 and Senior netball teams travelled to Malvern St. James to compete in the National ISA netball tournament last month. The teams played fantastic netball throughout, with one team becoming National ISA champions.
The Grange U16 team, consisting mainly of U15s, made the final last year and were keen to improve on that showing. They played some good netball in the rounds and made the cup competition finishing 2nd in their section. This meant a tough battle against St Josephs, Cornwall, who won their section. The match went to a nail biting golden goal but Charlotte Sellers was cool under pressure to score and book a place in the finals. This experience gave the team the drive they needed to go on and win their semi-final and final convincingly to take the national crown!
The U18 team played some fantastic netball on the day. An outstanding performance in defence from Lillie Prior and Helen Owen’s athletic dynamism through the middle of the court helped the Senior team to an excellent bronze medal position.
The U14 team also produced a string of very impressive victories, including over local rivals Alderley Edge.
