U14 County Champions
The U14 county netball championships took place at Stanborough School on Saturday 13th October. Broxbourne’s U14 squad had a number of tough group games against highly competitive opposition. After a very positive win against St Albans High in the first match, the squad gained momentum to win all their groups games:
- Broxbourne 11 – 4 St Albans High
- Broxbourne 9 – 5 Chancellors
- Broxbourne 13 – 10 Presdales
- Broxbourne 11 – 6 Haileybury
In the semi-final the girls faced a clinical Chauncy side. Despite going behind in the first few minutes and drawing 7 – 7 at half time, the team regrouped to pull ahead and win the match 17 – 8. The team knew the final would be tough against a resilient Berkhamsted team, but outstanding defending and clinical shooting ensured the squad won the match 10 – 6 to be crowned county champions.
The squad have now qualified for the regional championships, which will be held at Stanborough School on 26th January 2019.
