Our Lower School 1 netball teams performed well at the Lea Valley Tournaments on Tuesday (19 March).
The A team had a shaky start, losing against Broxbourne A, but then discovered their true form, beating John Warner 8-3 and Turnford 10-4 before going down 2-5 to Goffs in the semi-final.
The B team had an exceptional contest with an unbroken list of victories, beating Sele A 7-1, Goffs C 4-0 and Goffs B 4-2. After defeating a strong Presdales B team 4-2 in the semi-final they cruised to victory against Broxbourne B (4-0) to clinch the tournament. The whole team played superbly throughout under the brilliant captainship of Olivia Elvins.
The C team played four very close matches against stern opponents (all of them A or B teams), and although victory proved narrowly elusive they thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and excitement of competing in the tournament.
