Girls net great result

A Wolverhampton school scored an impressive first in February. Wolverhampton Girls High School’s U16 netball team qualified for the National Schools netball competition… for the first time ever.

The students were up against some very tough competition when the Regional finals took place at the Langley School in Telford. The quality of netball displayed by the students was outstanding throughout the competition, despite playing against some very good teams and battling against the cold weather. Overall they finished at the top of their section ensuring that they had a place in the semi-final.

In the semi-finals the girls beat St Joseph School 11-6 to go through to the finals and therefore secure a place in the National Competition. In the final they played Kings School Worcester to decide the winner and runners up of the overall Regional competition. Despite their best efforts, they lost with a very respectable score of 8-12 and went through, the only state school to qualify for the Nationals, which take place in March.

Head Mrs Younge says, “These students are totally dedicated to the sport, playing for clubs outside of school in addition to the commitment they make in school time and we’re extremely proud of what they’ve achieved so far. A huge congratulations to all and very well done!”
