Year 6 to ISA Netball finals in York
On Saturday 12 May, the Year 6 Netball team travelled to York for the Netball National Finals. It was always going to be a tough day, with the top 20 schools in the country competing over the weekend. St Mary’s had a very tough morning of Netball, playing against some outstanding opposing teams. The team got better with every game and grew in confidence, showing fantastic resilience despite the scores not going their way. In the afternoon, the tournament was then split into; the trophy, the plate and the Bowl, based on how the morning games had gone. St Mary’s competed in the Bowl competition. The team’s opening game was outstanding. They showed how much progress they had made throughout the morning and played some excellent netball. They won their quarter final 6-1 and semi final 8-1. The girls met Alleyn’s Court in the final. They had played them in the group stages in the morning, and were narrowly defeated 4-5. It was an incredibly tense match that went from one end to the other. At one stage, St Mary’s were 4-1 up, and it looked like they were going to win it, but Alleyn’s Court came back fighting! The final score ended 7-8 to Alleyn’s Court but our girls played brilliantly. Well done to the team; Phelix, Kate, Megan, Kaia, Rehna, Scarlett, Lottie and Izzy.
