St Swithun’s U13 netball team write: Last week the U13 netball A-team attended the Portsmouth Grammar School invitational netball tournament. It was extremely windy on the courts but despite the weather we kept up our enthusiasm. We won the first match (12-1) against West Bourne House which was a great start to the tournament, followed by another win against Portsmouth Grammar School U12, 9-7. Our next match, which we drew 7-7, was against Millfield. It was a strong team, however we fought till the end.
Our quarter-final match was verses Guildford High School U12 which we won 6-2. In the semi-final we played Portsmouth Grammar School U13 and the tension was rising, because we knew this was going to be a tough match. The final score was 6-5 to St Swithun’s.
We were thrilled to be through to the final, competing against Guildford High School U13. We played with great effort and determination but came away as runners up.
