King’s Retain the U16 Regional Schools’ Netball Championship Title

King's retained the U16 Regional Schools' Netball Championship title at Telford last weekend in a dazzling display of fast, physical and high level netball. Conditions were far from ideal with gale force winds testing the shooters throughout the day. King's started off the tournament with sound performances against St Joseph's College and Shrewsbury High School and as the games became more of a challenge the team stepped up and produced some great netball. The semi-final against Wrekin was a tough battle but we came away with a 9-7 win to qualify for the Nationals. The day, however, was not over since the girls wanted the U16 title and they went on to beat Wolverhampton Grammar School 13-9 to become Regional Champions for the second year in a row. Several girls train in the Nova Academy at King's under coach Emma Mckenzie and it is great to have their experience in the squad, but the large majority train at school and club and should be commended on their entertaining and high level netball. The parents and spectators were brilliant throughout the day and are a definite part of the success of the team. We hope we will be lucky enough to have similar support at Stanborough School for the finals in March.
