In a busy week for our netballers, there were some great results especially by U18A and U16A Netball Teams (v LEH), U15A Netball Team (v St Pauls) and U13A and B Netball Teams (v LUS). Our U15 teams played St Paul’s in two very tight matches on January 28th, with the A’s winning by 14-12 (MVP Yasmeen) and the B’s losing narrowly 10-14.
Our U18A team took an excellent win away at LEH (20-14) with the B’s losing on January 29th, while our U16A also won away at LEH on the same day (21-13).
Latymer Upper were the opponents on January 29th for our U14A-C and U13A-D teams. NHEHS came away with 4 wins, one draw and two defeats.

A huge well done to the U12 and U13 Indoor Athletics Teams on qualifying for the Regional Round of the London Youth Games. They will now attend the Regional Final on the 10th February, representing Team Ealing. You can see some of the action here.
In the only fixture of the week, our U14A team played home to Highgate on January 30th but lost 2-8 (POM Ana O).
Commiserations to the U15 water polo team who despite battling hard, lost out on making the Regional Qualifiers for water polo, based on goal difference at the County Round.
Big congratulations to Mia in Year 11, who was part of the successful London Sharks Water Polo team who were crowned Division Two champions at the Inter-Regional Under 18 championships at Walsall Gala Baths on the 25-26th of January! Mia played at number 10 for the team and was centre forward in all of the matches. On Saturday the London Sharks beat both East Midlands and Wales, then took on Scotland in the semi-finals, coming away with a narrow win. In the final, despite being behind at the beginning, London Sharks took a convincing win 9-2 against the so far undefeated East Angels, to be crowned National Division 2 champions and secure promotion to Division 1 next year!
