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.
