KES netballers reach regional rounds

On Saturday 7th October the U14 and U16 netball teams entered the annual County Tournament;the first round of the National Cup. Both sides played some exceptional netball and demonstrated great determination and focus throughout the day.

The U14 side played in a round robin tournament beating teams from PGS, Perins, Ballard, Priestlands and Farnborough Hill to finish as runners-up.   The U16 squad won their pool which included sides from St Swithun’s, St John’s, Priestlands, Kings’ Winchester and Bedales and progressed to face Perins in the semi-final and Brookfield School in the final. The girls played some outstanding netball to win the final and become county champions.

Both sides now go forward to the regional tournament, which will be held in January. This is the first time in recent KES history that we have had two year groups representing the county in the regional rounds and all the girls involved should feel incredibly proud of this achievement.
