The girls arrived raring to go for a jammed packed day of netball. The tournament structure was a round robin so this meant the girls had 9 matches to play, each of which were 6 minutes each way. The warm up was slick and with their netball brains engaged, the girls took to court for the first game against Westbourne House. The girls worked hard to keep errors to a minimum and the timing of their movements was fantastic. Throughout the tournament, the team stayed in the same positions with both Yasi Fryer (Wa) and Ella Stephens (Wa) sharing the Centre position, both of which had a great impact. The second game was against St John's and ended up being the hardest of the tournament. The girls kept composure at crucial times during this game and kept possession of the ball well. Results against the other schools were very strong as the girls won every game of the day. Excellent shooting by Amelia Burke (Wa) and Eva Sesay (Hu) was consistent throughout, and Eva showed variety in her game, passing the ball back out and in to get closer to the post. Freya Johnson (GH) was great at getting free for centre passes and did some superb feeds into the shooters. Amy Henwood (Hu) played amazingly throughout, getting lots of interceptions and being very effective at getting the ball down the court. Grace Gardner (GH) captained the team well and worked hard to stay close to her GA to keep her out of the circle. Gabby Sesay (Wa) and Grace Gardner worked well with each other and Gabby was excellent at getting the rebounds and putting pressure on the shooters. An amazing performance from all of the girls, who all thoroughly deserved player of the tournament as it was truly a whole team effort.
