The year 8 netball team qualified for the quarter finals of the Winter Games as they won the BANES netball tournament in December 2015. On Wednesday 13 January, the year 8 netball squad played in the quarter final against St. Bernadette’s.

St. Gregory’s started off the first quarter with a strong lead against St. Bernadette’s with great attacking play from Martha L and Maddie B leading to excellent shooting from Mia R and Caoimhe J. The third and fourth quarter were equally as strong with some tactical changes bringing Alice B and Jessi M into the defence positions maintaining the lead against St. Bernadette’s. Olivia G, Florrie W and Maeve C made a number of interceptions winning the ball back for St. Greg’s attacking players. Well done St. Gregory’s!

Final score: 31 – 10

St. Gregory’s are now through to the Winter Games semi final which will be played at UWE on Tuesday 2 February.
