Year 9 netball knockout cup

On the last Monday of the Easter term, the Year 9 Netball A team headed over to Dorothy Stringer where they played the Semi-Finals of the Area Knockout Cup against Blatchington Mill School. Despite missing a few of the regular team, the girls played with determination and skill and beat the Blatch team 9-5, putting them through to the Final against Cardinal Newman.

Due to having to play the semi-final on the same afternoon, our team was at a bit of a disadvantage. Initially, they lost a lot of ground but rallied well in the second half to to keep them from scoring many, but Cardinal Newman were very strong and took the win at 21-9. Massive credit to the girls who have played a lot of fixtures this season and are still in the running to be league champions.
