Competitions (Spring 2 Term)
TRANSITION NETBALL 28.2.17
Our Y6 girls put in a terrific performance in a Transition 7-a-Side Netball competition at Langley Park. Mrs Love helped familiarise the girls with the different positions during PE, and Mrs Jones proved an enthusiastic and able coach at the tournament.
Our first game was against Stewart Fleming, who were very capable and probably a bit taller than our girls.
Alex, Katie and Paige stood firm during some early pressure and soon Lauren, Prisha, Angelika and Molly were combining well and using some quick and accurate passing to get us up the pitch.
Eventually Castlecombe managed to work an opening for Angelika, who netted the only goal of the game.
Soon after freak storm forced the organisers to reluctantly abandon the tournament. It was heartening to see our resilient squad so keen to carry on, regardless of the damp and freezing conditions. Mr Moore had to almost drag them off the court!
Special mention should go to Kayleigh, who was due to play in the next game, but never got the chance. She took the disappointment in good spirits, and showed real character.
