Year 7 and 8 County Netball Tournaments 2017
The Budehaven Netball Squads have had a busy season of games and tournaments this year, especially the year 7 and 8 squads this year! For the majority of the season, we have fielded three Year 7 netball squads and two Year 8 netball squads, a number of players throughout all age groups have also helped in the running and officiating at netball tournaments too!
Under 13 Netball:
At the end of the season the year 8 Netball squads played their Key Stage 3 finals against the winning schools in the North Cornwall and Caradon areas, the year 8A squad were Runners Up with the 8B squad joint 3rd. This was based on the league matches they had played throughout the year.
The year 8 squad travelled to Camborne prior to the Easter break to compete in the County Netball Tournament, in the first round pool, the Bude girls won their matches against Falmouth 8 – 2, Helston 6 – 0 and Newquay Treviglas 12 – 2, they then went through into the second round as winners in their section. These matches were much closer and the girls fought hard on court to get the ball to the shooters, the defenders continued to work tirelessly to provide the turnover balls for the centre court to feed the circle. The Bude girls played and won against Penair 9 – 7, Richard Lander 7 – 6, but then unfortunately lost to Penryn 4 – 9 and Truro School 4 – 9. Overall the girls were 3rd in the County out of 23 participating teams, a great achievement. Well done to all the year 8 squad players this year, for your hard work and commitment. Here’s to another successful season next year!
Under 12 Netball:
The year 7 squads have had a busy year of fixtures and tournaments including their own Year 7 Netball Festival in the early part of the season and the Finals of the Key Stage 3 League in the local area, Bude year 7’s fielded two squads with the 7A team finishing runners up and the Bude B team coming 4th. Well done to all the students who took part and those students who officiated during the course of the tournament.
The Year 7 Budehaven Netball Squad also had to travel to Camborne for their County Netball Tournament to finish up the netballing season. 24 schools took part from across the County. In the first round, Bude won all their matches, beating Newquay Treviglas 10 -0, Pool 9 – 0, Fowey 15 – 1 and Richard Lander 6 – 2, they too, went through as winners of their section. The final section of the day saw all the winning teams play each other, Bude faced some stiff opposition and it was a pretty intense and tiring day! Bude narrowly lost to Penrice 0 -3, Truro School won 6 – 1, the girls did well to hold Penryn to a 4 all draw and in the final match they lost to Truro High School. Overall the girls came 5th out of 24 teams. A great result after a long day of quality netball. Well done to all the year 7 netballers this year, here’s to a successful and busy season next year!
