GOLD FOR NETBALL CHAMPIONS

GOLD FOR NETBALL CHAMPIONS

The Under 11 Netball Team from King's Rochester Preparatory School had reason to celebrate over the weekend, having brought home the gold from a Netball Tournament held at Ashford School

On arrival, we knew this was going to be a tough competition, on seeing the mini-buses of some of the toughest schools in Kent in the car park! However having narrowly missed out on the opportunity to play at the Copperbox Stadium by goal average, we were determined to prove ourselves as a winning team. The King’s girls didn’t disappoint, notching up victories across the board in short sharp 8 minute matches. Whilst wind conditions and the ‘no-gloves’ rule, hindered our play somewhat, we still outshone the opposition in our match play. Victories of 8 – 0 against Ashford B, 7 – 0 against Ashford A, 5 – 1 against Kent College, 4 – 3 against Granville and 6 – 2 against St Lawrence, claimed us as the champions, bringing home the gold medals. Another impressive afternoon of Netball by the U11A team.
