On the 9th of December the Year 7 netball A-squad played in the BANES Tournament. Our amazing team did extremely well, this team being: Poppy N (a fantastic shooter), Ciara O’D (the best captain), Cherry B-L (an incredible centre receiver), Millie H, Sophie H (who did some excellent passes), Kyla B (an awesome defender), Maeve P (no one could shoot when she was defending), Ella T (the fastest of them all), Helena W (with her great interception skills) and Brooke M (who stuck with her marker throughout).

In our first match against Somervale, St Gregory’s won 9-0! In the next game played, against Writhlington, we won again 5-1 but unfortunately we lost 5-3 to Norton Hill in our third game. However, we did not give up and in our next match we beat Chew Valley 5-0.

All these wins brought us through to the semi-final. In the semis we played against Haysfield; unluckily we ended up 1 point off making it through to the finals as they won 5-4! After this we had the chance to compete for 3rd and 4th against Norton Hill (again!). Unlike last time we beat Norton Hill 4-3. This win gave us an overall of 3rd in the competition, we were all incredibly proud of ourselves! In 1st place was Wellsway and in 2nd came Haysefield. However, none of this would have been possible if hadn’t of been for our amazing coach Mrs McHale so a big thank you to her!
