The Year 7 netball team took on eight other teams from the Selby area in the Selby school competition and played brilliantly throughout.
In the first three games they played Sherburn B, Brayton A and Selby A teams and netted 15 goals – five in each game – thanks to great shooting from Ella Austin and Emma Wharam.
With a short blip against a very physical Sherburn team losing 3-0 we soon came back out fighting with a 1-0 win over Sherburn A, a 4-0 win over Selby B, a 3-0 win over Carlton and finally a 3-0 win over Selby C.
For the girls to net so many goals and (mainly) keep clean sheets was a real credit to the team. The movement in centre court from Lucie Ward, Libby Appleyard, Hannah Tranter and Charlotte Cameron was really good and thanks to decisive defending from Lucy Pilkington and Jess Trotter we were always dominant on court.
Well done girls – it was a real pleasure to watch you!
We’re in The Press! History lessons are amazing when they are truly brought to life. Thanks so much to the veterans and @EverwitchTC for reminding us to concentrate on the future but never forget the past. twitter.com/yorkpres…
Congratulations to our wonderful SlamJam team! Their beautiful and passionate poetry got them all the way to the final. We may not have won this year, but the experience was fantastic and we’ll be back next year. Our @Barlby_High girls were a credit to us. #poetry#SlamJam2019pic.twitter.com/XOVG…
