Netball B Festival

Last week 8 year 5/6 girls attended the netball B festival at Alleyn Court school. Six schools were there, we played Hamstel and won 3-1, we then played Blenheim and won 2-0, we then played Bournes Green and won 2-0 and finally we played Darlinghurst which we lost 5-1. We therefore only lost one game and came second overall. Well done to all the girls involved, who all showed improvement as the games went on. #Year6 #Year5 #Wholeschool #Sport
