On Tuesday the Y8 netball team made their final trip of the
season to Leeds, apart from the huge hail stones it was a great day and
commented on by a number of staff how polite our students were.
We played several games in our pool some of the better wins
was that we beat John Smeaton Acdemy 10 -0 and then came Park Academy, we dug
very deep and beat them 4 – 0 to reach the Semi Finals. We set off slowly
against William Hulme Grammar school going 2 – 0 down, after several attempts
we scored our first goal but unfortunately ran out of time and lost 2-1.
We were 3rd out of the Northern and Central UL academies.
This result backs up the amazing season the Y8 netball team
have had. We got confirmation through at the start of the week they have
won the league and been promoted to the A League, as well as the big success
they have had at both city tournaments.
Congratulations team on Tuesdays success
but also on the season as a whole, in my opinion the most successful,
hardworking netball team we have had in the last 10 years.
A big thank you also to Mrs Jackson for being our faithful
supporter and driver for the season.
