Basingstoke Schools Netball Tournament

An excellent performance from all our Netball players!


St Mary’s entered two teams in the first round of the Basingstoke Schools Netball Tournament held at Russell Howard on Monday 12th March. This was the first time our pupils had played a match, let alone a whole tournament.

Our A team consisting of Corben, Archy, Stanley, Isabel, Lily, Megan and Leela played incredibly well, particularly with the interception of the ball and movement around the court. The team fought hard matches throughout dominating every game and eventually winning the final.

The B team had some very difficult matches but gained in experience throughout the afternoon. Having lost their first two matches they managed to pull one back winning 1-0. Every team member worked hard to support and encourage each other when it was their turn to be on the side line. Players were Jess, Lauren, Sophie, Imogen, Lucy, Noah and George,

Team spirit was prominent from both teams and all pupils should be proud of their achievements.

The A team now go forward to the next round on Thursday 19th April where we wish them luck.
