The Thomas Hardye School

U16 Dorset County Netball Tournament

Netball Team

On Thursday 13th October, the Under 16's Netball girls went down to Budmouth to represent the school in the County Netball Tournament. We had a tough pool including Blandford, Sherborne Girls, Poole Grammar School and Canford.

The girls started strong, with comfortable wins over both Poole Grammar and Blandford with some excellent shooting from Minnie Foice and Daisy Essex. The next two games were going to be tough, as these schools progressed through last year. Sherborne girls started strong taking an early lead but by half time, the defence of Jessamy Baker and Rachel Smith turned over a lot of their passes into the shooting circle and we only lost 8-6. The final game saw our girls take on Canford (last year's winners) and the girls gave a very strong performance, but Canford were just too strong.

The girls played exceptionally well and should be very proud of themselves, only missing out on progressing through by one point. The girls played with real passion and showing a high level of skill. Player of the tournament was Jessamy Baker.
