Netball Festival

On the 22nd November eighteen Year 5 and Year 6 children represented Sherston School at the Malmesbury Netball Festival. There were approximately twenty teams in the competition and they were divided into two halves. One half was for the A teams and the other for the B teams. It was a very cold and windy day and all the children coped extremely well with very difficult conditions. Shooting goals was particularly difficult as the wind would suddenly pick a ball up and hurl it sideways! Amazingly, goals were scored but conditions meant that often there was only one goal separating each team. Sherston A team played consistently well and only lost one match in the pool games. They had a play off for third/fourth position which they won convincingly making them third in the tournament. The B team went one step further and qualified for the first/second final. Sadly they lost that game but it still left them in second position overall which was a fantastic result. My player of the tournament from the A team was Alice N for always being free and supporting her team. Miss Duddridge's player for the B team was Alex E.
