U14 Netball

Chellaston Girls crowned County and City champions!

 

Congratulations once again to the U14 netballers who have managed to bag the title of tournament winners not once but twice in the past month. They won the City tournament back in October and have now gone on to finish as County champions and will represent Derbyshire at the Regional finals in Repton on Saturday 25th January.

 

After losing their first game to a very strong Lady Manners side, they went on to successfully defeat all the other schools in their section including beating Trent College by 12 goals to 2, beating Dronfield 12-5 and Tibshelf 13-5. They then saw off Repton in the semi-finals who they beat 10 - 5, before facing Lady Manners again but this time  in the final, showing that they have the ability to out perform anyone who got in their way of victory.

 

Mrs Grimwood is so proud of the girls and said that they were utterly brilliant and did themselves and the academy proud. They played skillfully with true grit and determination throughout the tournament and were thoroughly deserving of the title. This is the first time that a Chellaston team have reached the regional stages of the tournament  for 10 years and the girls should be really pleased with themselves.

 

Mrs Grimwood would also like to thank  Miss Hardy for giving up her afternoon to umpire as the school's designated 'C' award umpire, she was amazing too!
