Oakham’s U14 netball team are celebrating after winning all 6 of their games at the County Tournament to secure their place at the Regional Finals in December.

Fantastic teamwork saw the girls achieve comfortable wins against Robert Smyth (14-3), Loughborough (5-4), Leicester High (21-0) and Belvoir Priory (13-10). In the Quarter Finals they beat Belvoir Priory (17-4) and in the Semi-Finals they claimed a brilliant victory over Kibworth (14-7).

Director of Netball, Lauren Nicholls, said of their success: “We are very proud of our girls! This is the third year running that Oakham have successfully gone through to Regionals at U14 level. It is a huge achievement for the team and highlights that netball remains strong at Oakham School.”

The squad will travel to De Montfort University on 6 December to play the final vs Loughborough High, where they will be aiming to continue their winning streak.

The U14 team’s recent triumph is a continuation of last season’s success where three of Oakham’s netball teams competed in the Regional Finals.
