The best teams from across the county took part and the standard of play was excellent. The Year 7 and 8 teams both won all of their group games playing some fantastic netball. Both teams lost their semi-finals with the Year 8 team coming agonisingly close to making it through to the final. However, both teams dusted themselves down to win playoffs and come third in the tournament.
Not to be outdone by their younger counterparts the Year 9 team also won all games in the rounds. They did this convincingly, playing efficient, well drilled and organised netball. They then beat Bridgewater in the semi-final to win a place in the final against rivals Kings Chester. This was a well contested game and a reply of many previous finals, and the girls played coolly to be crowned Cheshire champions for the third successive year!
“I am very proud of all of these teams. Having a team in the finals in every age group is an outstanding achievement at this level of competition and the girls’ attitude and game play was exceptional. National finals on Saturday gives the U14 team a chance to compete with the best - they have been working for this for the last 3 years,” said Miss Fowler, Head of Netball.
