Tettenhall are champions!

At the end of January, Tettenhall College’s U14s took part in the ISA Midlands Netball Tournament at Malvern St James. The day-long tournament saw teams from all over the Midlands competing, with games set at 14 minutes each meaning the girls had to keep their level of performance high throughout.

The first part of the tournament was the group stage, in which Tettenhall College (TC) would have to gain good results against five other schools in order to progress to the knockout stage. Consistently good netball ensured a comfortable route through, with the team scoring 66 points in total and only conceding 15. TC won every game so, as winners of their group, they played against the runners up of the second group, Bedstone College. Again, TC came out convincing winners, with a score of 13-1.

Next the girls came up against Twycross House, the team that had provided the toughest challenge in the group stage. A hard-fought game finished even so went to extra time – with the girls, apart from captain Peaches Burris-Rowe, not knowing that the ‘golden goal’ rule was in play. Following an end-to-end few minutes, TC scored and became champions.

TC’s director of sport James Bullock says, “As a school, we’re very proud of the girls and their achievement. Every girl who took part should also be proud of what they have done – special thanks must go to Mrs Causebrook for her coaching and time with the girls.”
