The Under 18 Netball Team is through to the regionals after another fantastic performance. With the squad having the first set of matches off, we had time to get in a thorough warm up, several drills and a chance to check out our competition. This paid off as our play was superb throughout the court in our first match, winning against Malvern St James (20-2). This gave us a much needed boost of confidence for our next match against Bromsgrove.
Despite losing to Bromsgrove, the perseverance of the team and the uplifting roar from the squad on the side-line did not let us drop our heads. This positivity, along with some inspiring shooting, gave us a 13-5 win against Christopher Whitehead Language College. In our fourth match against Haybridge School, we showed intensity both in attack and defence, giving us a win of 20-6. We then lifted our heads, took a deep
breath and prepared for our match against King’s School Worcester as we knew it would be a challenge. The first few centres were turned over from King’s giving them a 4-0 lead, but RGS dug deep and by half time we gained a worthy score. We kept the intensity high in both the play and the cheering.
The girls worked like clockwork to gain a win of 13-9.
Our last match against Malvern College was challenging, however we battled on through to win 12-6. Overall, the girls played really well and utterly deserved to be through to Regionals. I can’t wait for the positivity and determination to continue.
Well done girls.
