Netball Success for Year 7
18 March 2016
On Tuesday 15 March, our Year 7 netball team played in their end of season Kings Norton tournament. There were eight teams entered from across Birmingham and EHS were in a pool with Bishop Challoner, Turves Green and Colmers. Team EHS were on fire right from the very start with some excellent scores against these teams. The team won 10-nil, 8-nil and 5-1 against these schools. As a result of these scores, EHS progressed to the semi-finals as they won their pool.
In the semi-final they played the Birmingham University School, winning this match 6-nil to progress to the final against King Edward VI Five Ways. In their league match against Five Ways earlier this term, it was a really close game so Team EHS knew it would be a tough one. The final was very close and a really good competitive netball game. EHS won 3-1 making them champions of the tournament, at the end of which they were presented with their trophy. Winners’ medals will also be received in the near future! Well done to the whole team for playing excellent netball throughout the tournament.
