U13 Netballers Northern Champions Again

After emerging victorious from a fantastic game against Yorkshire’s South Hunsley School, The Grange’s U13 netball players have retained their status as champions of the North in the prestigious School Sport Magazine Cup.

The 46-27 victory means this group of players become northern champions for the second year in a row. The northern final also serves as a national quarter-final meaning that the Grange team will now go forward to contest a national semi-final.

The Grange team allied an excellent defence with great control and composure from the shooters in the mid-January match-up. Sophie Sellers got girl of the game with her dynamic attacking play proving too much for the South Hunsley squad.

In the previous round The Grange came up against a very strong Bury team. Seen as underdogs by many, the Grange team produced an excellent performance with Emily Hills turning the ball over to great effect in defence whilst Jessica Brocklebank and Katie Wakefield were ice cool when it came to converting their shots.

The team will now go on, as representatives of the North, to play Berkhamsted School in the national semi-final on February 10th.
