Downe House fielded three teams for the Berkshire round of the National Schools Netball Tournament.
The U18 and U16 teams fought hard, but it was the A14s who won the medals and earned a place in the next round. Teamwork was the key to their success, with every girl working hard and supporting each other.
There were some excellent individual performances, with superb shooting from Lexi Miliken and Alexa Feather, tight marking from Cecilia Hughes and a great interception from Issy Brown in the final moments of the fiercely contested semi-final. Every member of the squad played in the final, finishing as silver medallists behind Wellington College – the only team to beat us all day! The Regional Round will take place on Saturday 25th January.
"They are a team with lots of potential and preparation for the Regionals will require dedication to training and even more team spirit. Well done girls!" - Miss Laura Vickery, PE Teacher
Congratulations to: Issy Brown (captain), Cecilia Hughes (vice captain), Ella Bennett, Lara Bracher, Sasha Coulson, Alexa Feather, Monique Leong, Lexi Miliken, Anabel Roest and Georgina Tarling.
