Both the Year 8 and senior netball teams competed in the county cup netball finals yesterday, which we held at St Albans High School for Girls. Both teams entered the competition back in September and have successfully overcome opposition from across the county in the rounds, last sixteen, quarter-finals and semi-finals.
The Year 8 squad faced tough opposition from Berkhamsted School. Despite the cold and blustery conditions, the girls gave a great account of themselves finishing runners-up by 34 goals to 11.
The senior final was similar, playing against 2018 winners, St Edmonds School. Despite excellent pressure in the defence, the wind made it difficult to transition the turnovers into the attacking third. The girls from Year 11 and 12, worked tirelessly for the entire match, finishing runners-up by 39 goals to 15.
Well done to all girls who have participated in the competition.
