U12 Oakham Prep Schools Netball Tournament Witham team runners up!

05 Mar 2015

The U12 Netball side travelled to Oakham School for their Annual Prep Schools’ Netball Tournament on Sunday 1st March.  The team consisted of U12 & U11 girls, who have played consistently well in their Inter School fixtures at Senior and U11 level.  The team :  Captain Isabella Manara, Anya Batty, Ella Turner, Jo Jo Chawner, Issy Wass, Sophie Hamilton, Alice Farmer and Harriet Anthony. 

The tournament was a round robin and Witham played 5 matches, 8 minutes each way.  The results were as follows:

Witham v St John’s, Cambridge – Witham won 7-4

Witham v S Anselm’s – Witham won 5-1

Witham v Stoneygate – Witham lost 0-9

Witham v Oakham School – Witham won 7-3

Witham v Swanbourne Prep – Witham won 9-6

The U12 girls performed some wonderful play and each of the games tested our belief, skill and team work.  Witham came runners up to Stoneygate in the Cup Competition and they certainly worked very hard to earn that runners up spot.  I am very proud of every player who gave 100% throughout, Witham should be very proud of them!  Issy Wass was the Witham ‘Player of the Tournament’, with her consistent, calm play and her wonderful work rate on and off the ball.  Well done to all the girls and thank you to all our parents and supporters who came over to Oakham and supported Witham throughout.  Well done!
