Netball Team Crowned Lincolnshire County Champions
Stamford High School's 1st VII Netball team became Lincolnshire County Champions after convincingly winning the county tournament hosted at Stamford High School on Wednesday 11th November.
Six teams from the region qualified for the round robin tournament and SHS remained unbeaten scoring an impressive 76 goals in total and only conceding 17 throughout the entire tournament.
SHS’s first game against Casitor Grammar -last year’s county winners- set the tone for the rest of the tournament winning 15-4 in just 20 minutes. Spalding Grammar proved a tricky game, the wind hindering the girls shooting. Despite this the team managed to clinch an 8-2 victory. The third match against Carres Grammar resulted in a 20-2 win. The final two games against Bourne Grammar and Priory LSST Lincoln, saw further goals and convincing wins of 19-6 and 14-3 respectively.
SHS proved their credentials as a strong team with a defensive unit led faultlessly by Maddie Munro-Hall. Velvet Cordial and Honor Munro-Hall proved unstoppable in the D scoring all 76 goals between them and Isabel Chedd, Emily Grace, Alex Wilkinson and Eliza Kay held the centre court well.
Heidi Cannie, Head of Physical Education for Stamford High School, said; “The SHS 1st VII netball team are certainly one to watch out for as they now go on to represent Lincolnshire at the regional tournament on the 23rd January 2016.”
