Year 9 Netball Team take the win against Campion.

After a long summer break,   the Year 9 netball team took to the court and meant business.

The girls got off to a great start leading the first quarter by 12 goals to 1 with some great team play and feeding into the circle from WA – Abbie Bourton and C – Holly Yates. The girls continued to increase their lead with a great team effort and some great defending by our new team member Issy Bergendorf. Fantastic shooting from Jess Carro and Rosie Dillon saw the team take a 36-2 victory and Jess Carro nominated player of the match.

Well done girls a fantastic start to the season. Mrs Smith.

Both teams played extremely well, the year 7 girls netball team was a very tight match all the way to the end where it finished a draw.

The year 9 Webb Ellis team dominated and won. The boys football was extremely close, a draw for both the 7’s and 8’s, with the year 9 Webb Ellis dominating agin for the boys.

Year 9 Rugby

Southam Y9 continue their impressive unbeaten run in October sunshine.
Alcester Grammar School 0 – 31 Southam
The Y9 Rugby team travelled to Alcester to play the highly rated Alcester Grammar School team and came away with a well deserved victory.
Messrs Houldey, Turner, Parkin-Neal and Willis played in their usual direct and abrasive style to tire out the opposition players. But it was the desire in defence to hunt the ball carrier, return back to feet amd compete at the breakdown, chase loose balls and exploit opposition mistakes that really stood out in the sunshine.
Scores from Parkin-Neal, Houldey and Turner were interspersed by outstanding team scores, eventually finished off by the very impressive Eric Stanley and Charlie Morrison.
An increased desire to carry hard at contact resulted in some fantastic line breaks by James Taylor, who along with Dion Tulloch evaded countless tackles when running with the ball in hand.
This group continue to improve, but there are still areas to work on as we continue on our path towards the National Cup in Year 10.
See you at training on Wednesday.
