A jubilant and windswept squad of year 10 girls returned back to Bude after winning this year’s County Netball Tournament hosted at Truro School. It was pretty testing conditions during the course of the day, although it stayed dry, the winds and biting temperatures tested the mettle of the 22 competing teams from across the County.
The Budehaven squad in the morning played Truro High School, winning 10 – 6, Roseland School, winning 5 – 0, Brannel School winning 5 – 2, and finally playing Newquay Treviglas, winning 10 – 1. They went through as winners of their section to the afternoon round.
Their winning streak continued, with some exceptional teamwork, movement onto the ball, great defensive work, excellent attacking and shooting skills. Their work rate throughout the tournament remained high, despite the bitter weather conditions. Their games were confidently umpired by one of Budehaven’s sixth form PE students, Lilly Hunt.
Results from the afternoon, included winning against Truro School 4 – 2, Penryn 7 – 2, Falmouth 5 – 1 and continuing their winning streak against Penrice winning 4 – 1.
Overall, without conceding any matches the girls were winners of the tournament and 2017 County Champions! Well done to all members of the squad, great teamwork and some beautiful and consistent netball played throughout the whole day. We look forward to next year’s tournament!
