Year 8 Netball Tournament

On Thursday 16 February, several Year 8 students took part in a City Netball Tournament. For some students, it was their very first tournament. Altogether 13 schools entered and the results are below:
◦ Excel v Discovery - WON 5-1
◦ Excel v St.Josephs A - LOST 5-0
◦ Excel v OSSMA - WON 3-1
◦ Excel v Trentham - WON 2-1
◦ Excel v St.Peters - WON 2-0
◦ Excel v Haywood B - WON 3-0

The girls won their section and progressed through to the semi-final where they played St.Josephs B team. The score ended up 1-1 therefore it went to golden goal, which meant that the team to score first won and progressed through to the final. Unfortunately St.Josephs scored first.

Congratulations to the following girls:
◦ Dana Chambers
◦ Ange-Lynne Menoumba
◦ Libby Ankers
◦ Grace Richards
◦ Brooke Swift
◦ Millie Stubbs
◦ Cejay Hopley
◦ Maddie Sutton
◦ Maisie Hughes

All girls showed fantastic support for one another, great team spirit and lots of enthusiasm. They performed extremely well and it was a great achievement to get to the semi-finals. Well done - you did yourselves and the Academy proud!
