The team played some really impressive netball in the first round of games, with lots of interceptions, turnovers and super shooting! We were placed 2nd in our pool and qualified to compete in the semi-final against Headington School. It was a highly competitive game and the final score was 11-2 to Headington. The team showcased a quality level of netball today, earning themselves some fantastic results! We received some lovely comments from both officials and coaches about how well the team played, they really were fantastic DGS ambassadors. DGS were placed 3rd out of 16 schools in Oxfordshire, an outstanding result which the team should be extremely proud of!
