The U12 team captained by Iona Winn-Darley recovered after an early loss to Durham High School for Girls (3-5) to beat Barnard Castle (9-0), Cundall Manor (8-2), The Chorister School (4-1), Durham School (9-2) and Polam Hall (7-6).
Head of girls’ games and U12 netball coach Natalie Glen said: ‘The girls managed to put an early defeat to Durham High School behind them. They kept their heads up, found their form and bounced back.’
On the same afternoon the U10 team captained by Amy Foster competed in Durham’s U10 netball tournament. They came in runners-up having beaten Bow School (11-1), Cundall Manor (3-2), The Chorister School (3-1), Polam Hall (6-0) and Red House (4-1), but losing to the eventual winners Durham High School (0-4).
Meanwhile, earlier in the week, the U11 netball team captained by Clemmie Preston were runners up in Sedbergh’s U11 netball tournament.
After group stage mataches against Casterton (3-1), Mowden Hall (3-3), Sedbergh B (8-0) and Westville (3-3), and a tight semi-final against St Mary’s Hall (3-3) which went to a golden goal, the U11 team was defeated by Mowden Hall 4-1.
Natalie Glen said: ‘This was a terrific performance from a committed team with some notable individual performances, in particular from Tara Jones who was voted defender of the tournament and awarded a netball signed by several England netball players.’
