Wycliffe plays at IAPS National Netball Finals

Great spirit, great determination, great teamwork!

On Tuesday 6th March, after the tournament was postponed due to extreme weather conditions, the U13As travelled to Millfield and played some outstanding netball at the IAPS netball regionals. The group results were as follows:

Clifton Prep School – Wycliffe won 9 – 7

West Hill Prep School – Wycliffe won 10 – 2

Hanford Prep School – Wycliffe won 8 – 5

Mount Kelly – Wycliffe won 15 – 1 (the games were only 14 minutes long and so they really went for it)

Cheltenham Prep School – Wycliffe won 13 – 3

Moor Park – Wycliffe won 9-8

This meant that Wycliffe had qualified for the knock out stages – top of our group!

In the quarter final, they met Monkton Coombe. After a short lunch break, the squad went back out on court, looking fresh faced, determined and hungry for a win, which they did convincingly 12 – 5.

The semi-finals meant Wycliffe faced Taunton Prep. This was a little bit more of a nail bitter, with the final result ending 9 – 7 to Wycliffe. As the whistle blew, the girls learnt that they had qualified for the national finals. Tears of relief and joy streamed down their faces and they had to quickly compose themselves ready to play Millfield in the final. After the first few minutes, Wycliffe were leading 3-0, but unfortunately, they were unable to maintain this, resulting in us qualifying second overall. The performance from the squad and the way they represented the school was fantastic. Huge congratulations to : Connie Palmer © Olivia Lundie, Mimi Green, Jasmine Jackson, Alix Williams, Dasiy Hartson, Lia Trainor (VC) Naomi Opaleye.

The same squad then headed to Essex later that week, excited about an overnight stay in a hotel, ready to participate in the finals on Friday 9th March . After an early win, the girls were unable to maintain this, narrowly losing out in several matches by only one goal each time. They lost to the eventual overall winners 3-4, which highlights the standard of netball that was being played in the tournament and how close some of the matches were.

Great spirit, great determination, great teamwork!
