U11 Netball Team are IAPS Plate Winners
A very disappointing start to the IAPS netball competition on the morning of 28th February, losing all of the matches against Belmont Mill Hill (4-3), Heath Mount (6-2) and Bedford Girls (2-1), took the U11 team through to the Plate Tournament with eight other schools.
The team was feeling very low and emotional so we had a good team talk to prepare us for the Plate. Being rejuvenated and ready to go, playing as a team and encouraging each other, we took on Norwich and beat them convincingly 4-2. This took us to the semi-finals, where we met The Abbey, who had won their previous game by a large margin. The College team dug deep and pushed the ball forward, marking tightly and resulting in a win 3-2.
The final put us against Belmont, who we had lost against in the morning. At this point we were just pleased we had reached the final and by half time we were one goal down. With just one change in defence in the last half we stopped Belmont increasing their score and increased our score by three finishing with a score of 5-3, making The College U11 team WINNERS OF THE IAPS PLATE.
Well done to the team, so proud of you all.
Ms Boulton, Netball Coach
