Girls from Years 7, 8 and 9 were presented with medals in assembly for their success in the Kettering and Corby League. The Year 8 girls convincingly beat all of their opponents to gain first place and gold medals, while their counterparts from Years 7 and 9 won bronze.

The girls are coached by Miss Feeley and Mrs Van Neirop. Vice Principal Mr Bernard said in assembly: ‘The Year 8 netball team have had an absolutely phenomenal year, congratulations to all those who got medals.’

Mrs Van Neirop said: ‘The Year 7s were undeafeated until the play-offs and the Year 8s were undefeated all the way through. They have worked really hard. It is great for them to have done so well at practice after school and to reap the rewards of their hard work. We train after school on Tuesdays and focus on general footwork skills and teamwork. A lot of the Year 8s are playing outside of school which helps in terms of strengthening their experience.’

Year 9 captain Samantha Bristow said: ‘We have got a couple of good shooters and a lot of defence on our team.' Elise Coogan, who captains Year 7, said ‘We were working as a team and persevering to win the games. Our strength is in our attack, we always seem to get the ball off opponents by marking.'

Lauren Coull, captain of the victorious Year 8 girls, said: ‘We played really well as as a team and pushed ourselves to be the best that we could be. We kept persevering to win all of our games. It is really good to have won, a great achievement for our team.’
