SHS Students to Play in National Netball Finals
Three Stamford High School pupils, Darcey Cordial, Maddie Munro Hall and Alex Wilkinson, are looking forward to the National Netball U16 Club Finals in Newcastle at the end of April.
Maddie and Alex (both Year 11) play for Northants JMs, based in Wellingborough. The team won all of their matches in the regional competition beating the top teams from Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. After enduring a gruelling 9 matches over the course of just two days, the squad were victorious.
Darcey, a Year 10 pupil, plays for Rutland Rockets, based in Oakham. Her journey to the final was a little more anxious after her side was awarded second place on goal difference. The National Finals will be held at the University of Northumberland on the first May Bank Holiday weekend.
Jess Wilkinson (Year 9) represented Northants JMs at the U14s Regional Final, but they failed to secure a place at the National Final.
