Summer Success for King’s Netballers
Although the school netball fixtures finished in the spring term a number of King’s players were keen to keep their hand in and put themselves forward to be selected for the Severn Stars U15 side. Both Georgie Thorp and Mia Mathewson were successful in selection and trained during the summer holidays before a four day tournament in Loughborough. The event was the Great Britain equivalent of a mini Olympics: professional athletes gave talks, athletes were featured on BBC and Sky News and there was live streaming of all of the sports. Heading to Loughborough as part of a very strong squad, Georgie and Mia helped to win the first ever netball trophy, beating Hertfordshire Mavericks in the final. A superb achievement at an unforgettable event.
