U14A Team Win GSA Netball Tournament!
A great weekend away for the U14A netball team at the GSA Netball Tournament at Condover Hall to really start working together as a team and focus on the season ahead. In the Saturday Pool results, the team won against St George’s Ascot (B), Monmouth School for Girls, Channing School, drew with The Marist School and Francis Holland (Sloane Square), only losing to Wimbledon High School. On Sunday in the Trophy Pool, NHEHS were victorious against Edgbaston High (10-5), Bolton High School (8-6), Channing School (9-3), St Helen and St Catherine (11-6), Francis Holland (Sloane Square 9-6), Tormead School (12-4). These fantastic results meant that the team won nine games, drawing two and only losing one, so they won the Trophy for the second year in a row! Well done, girls!
The U13A netballers also took on the challenge of the GSA Netball Tournament. They worked extremely hard and really came together as a team, finishing an excellent 6th out of 23 schools. We were also lucky enough to speak to England netballer Eboni Chambers and get some defensive tips from her!Player of the tournament: Addy.
