Success for our Badminton and Netball teams!

On Tuesday 7th February, important fixtures took place for our Netball and Badminton teams.

Our U14 and U16 Badminton teams, both of whom had beaten all other South Oxfordshire schools to qualify for this stage,  went to the White Horse Leisure and Tennis Centre in Abingdon for the County schools Badminton competition.

The U14s played very well but just didn't quite have the experience to beat the quality of competition that they faced.The U16 team however did not lose a game, completely unbeaten and were crowned Oxfordshire champions! The U16 team will now go on to compete at Regionals later on this year.

Congratulations to Lucy Grain, Maisie Marriott, Safia Khimji, Ellie Richmond, Georgia Evans, Freya Melrose, Jasmine Barnes and Claudia Oosterveld.

 

The Year 11 Netball team competed at the South Oxfordshire area tournament. The girls displayed a fantastic level of netball, working hard as a team to link passes, support one another and allow the shooters show off their super shooting skills. The results were as follows:

Wheatley Park 14-0 WIN

Chiltern Edge 13-0 WIN

Icknield 12-0 WIN

Wallingford 12-1 WIN

Gillotts 12-1 WIN

Langtree 11-1 WIN

Congratulations to Lucy Grain (C), Georgia Haworth, Kate Millar, Katherine Burns, Vanessa Taylor, Rachael Strange, Erin Strange and Ellie Richmond. The team will now go on to compete at the county tournament later on in the year.
