The U19 netball team had an incredibly successful afternoon at the County round of the National Schools’ Netball Tournament winning a place in the Regional Tournament for the 7th year running.

The girls powered their way through the round robin competition, with 8 wins and 1 draw out of their 9 matches.

The team comfortably beat Robert Smyth (13-2), Leicester Grammar (14-0), Ashby (15-1), Harington (9-3), Hinckley Academy (24-2) and Uppingham (11-7). They continued their winning performances against Ratcliffe (8-7), Loughborough High (9-6) and secured a draw against Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth (5-5).

Director of Netball Mrs Lauren Nicholls said, “The girls played brilliantly and I am very proud of them. They are extremely dedicated and have worked hard to achieve these fantastic results. We are all looking forward to the Leicester and Rutland finals against Loughborough on 6 December at De Montfort University.”

Oakham School now has a team in both the U14 and U19 age categories of the County finals, and we wish them the best of luck with their matches.
