Great news for a Monday morning with our U14 Netball Team qualifying for the National Finals after the seven-match, southeast regional heat which took place yesterday in Rainham, Kent.
The girls played tremendously, beating schools with noted netballing prowess including Guildford High School, Forest School, Highworth Grammar, Rochester Grammar and Bancrofts. In total out of their seven matches, the girls won five matches, drew one and lost one. This meant that at the end of the day they were tied with local west London rivals (and friends) Godolphin and Latymer who had drawn with NHEHS in their match. A slightly better goal difference saw Godolphin secure top place but finishing in second place means the NHEHS team safely, and most deservedly, are through to the National finals on 17 March.
Reaching a national final is a great achievement and officially makes this team one of the best 12 for their age group in the whole country! Congratulations Sophie Claxton (Captain), Isabella Holmes (Vice Captain), Mia Mutadich, Isobel Thornton, Natasha Jones, Amelia Samtani, Jasmine Saha, Jasmine Palmer, Edie Elwes, Ria Datar Jones, Grace Kenyon and Bea Farrell.
