First VII Crowned Netball Champions
The newly formed Stamford High School First VII were crowned netball county champions after competing in the Lincolnshire County Tournament on Wednesday 13th November.
The SHS team started the tournament with some great wins against Brigg, Lincoln College, Caistor, Bourne and Priory LSST. The next team the girls faced was Deeping, who had also won all their games so far. It was a tough match and after putting up a great fight, the SHS team managed to win by one goal at the whistle.
The final match was against QEGs Horncastle. After a disappointing start, trailing by 0-6 in the first few minutes, the SHS team knuckled down and played some excellent netball. Unfortunately they came away with their first defeat of the day with a final score of 15-16. After a nervous wait, the team were eventually crowned County Champions on goal difference.
Team Captain, Molly Atkinson, said: “We were ecstatic to discover that we had won the tournament and would go forward as Lincolnshire County Champions. The whole team is really looking forward to the regional round in January.”
