New Netball Dresses

On Thursday 12th of May the girls who play netball in year 7, 8 and 9 modelled the new netball dresses. The dresses are  navy blue  with a light blue colour down the side and have the school logo at the bottom. On the right hand side at the back of the dresses is the e3 logo (e3 actually bought the dresses for us.)  The dresses are very nice and all the girls will look very smart when they play against other teams. The dresses are really comfortable and are a good fit.

Elysia Humphreys said: “I love the dresses and I can’t wait for our next match so I can wear it!”

We all want to thank e3 very much for buying the dresses for us and we hope they can watch us play soon in our new kit that will look very smart!

Netball Tournament

The successful team

Year 7/8 girls entered a Year 8 tournament on Wednesday 9th of March and were very successful. We played 6 matches in total and overall came 2nd. We lost one match, drew one and then won 4. The last match was against Bryncelynnog which was the decider of what position we came overall. It was a tough match but we were all focused and determined, and by doing so we beat Bryncelynnog by a few goals. It was the same sort of story for all the other matches. The team that we lost to (by one point), were the overall winners of the tournament and were a really hard team to play against as we had to do everything that we could to keep in the game. One of the teams that we played were disqualified as the whole team were from year 9 so we automatically won but we still had to have a good result to pick up points; which we did.

We had strong centre passes throughout the matches and passed to each other quickly so the other teams had to act fast. The defenders defended well by getting the ball down the court quickly and putting pressure on the shooters. We attacked well and were coming forward for the ball and getting into space to create more opportunities. When we got the ball down the court the shooters delivered and were shooting from every angle efficiently.

Overall it was a very good result for the girls and they should be proud of themselves for doing so!
