Year 7 Girls inspired at Super-league netball match!

27 Feb 2018

A group of Year 7 girls travelled to Loughborough University with Mrs Tarver and Mr Lewis on Saturday evening. Everyone was very excited about watching Loughborough Lightening take on the Celtic Dragons. The atmosphere was electric in the arena; the girls were on the edges of their seats as the players ran onto the court, music blaring and the crowd roaring.

The standard of play was phenomenal; the girls watched, mouths wide open, as Lightening’s GS effortlessly popped every goal in, their WA and C jumped and managed to hang in the air for what seemed like forever, and the 6ft 3 GK plucked the ball out of the air. These seemingly superhuman players left our Year 7 girls truly inspired, and getting to meet them and get autographs and photos at the end of the match really topped off a great experience. The final score was a resounding win to Loughborough with a score of 69-45. The girls represented the school wonderfully, even doing well in the half time shoot-off competition! Thank you to Loughborough for the fantastic game and to Mr Lewis for giving up his Saturday evening to come with us.
