Yesterday we took Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 teams over to NLS for their first netball match of the year.
The Year 9’s continued in their winning fashion after such a strong and successful season last year. The girls battled their way through a strong and disciplined North Leam team. Luckily the defensive pairing of K. Cummings and C. Ellis Greenway played brilliantly to only allow NLS to score twice in the whole game. Southam played brilliantly and had most of the possession throughout the game due to some creative and quick work in the centre court area from A. Coles, N. Nicholas and J. Rigg. After the ball had made its way to the shooting circle the girls were rewarded with 10 goals, coming from a combination of A. Carro, M. Pavey and H. Aris. Finish 10-2 to Southam.
Well done ladies a fantastic display of netball and a truly enjoyable evening. We look forward to some very successful seasons.
Miss Warman, Miss Evans, Miss Maclachlan and Lauren
Welcome back. I hope that you are rested and have now settled into your year 9 GCSE courses. I have been very impressed by the way you have shown focus and desire to do well in the subjects that you have chosen. It will be different, things will get tougher and deadlines need to be met. Keep on top of it and set good habits now that will see you through the year. Make progress this year . Check your work – little and often is the key! I wish you success in the year ahead.
