London Youth Games - Bronze Medallists!
On Thursday 28th March the Highfield Y5/6 Netball team set off to represent Bromley Borough at the London Youth Games. This is the first time Highfield have got through as the Borough champions. In the first round we had 3 great wins, beating Camden 5-0, Brent 3-1 and Ealing 9-1. What a start!
This put us through to the next stage. We then had another two wins 6-3 v Barnet and 4-1 v Haringey. We had our first loss against Hillingdon 2-4. We were through to the Quarter Finals, and what a nail-biting game this was against Barking & Dagenham!
We quickly got a 4-1 lead but then found ourselves at 5-5 with the whistle about to go, our spectators were on the edge of their seats, until Zara sealed the win in the last seconds, making it 6-5! So we were into the semifinals against local Borough Bexley, who beat us 5-2. It was a fantastic day of netball and the whole squad did Highfield and Bromley Borough proud, coming home BRONZE medallists, which is an amazing achievement and one that we hope they will carry with them for a long time.
Huge congratulations to Emily, Zara, Kushala, Vishalini, Euan, Toby and William. We would also like to say a special thank you to Bea, Olivia and Shivali who were part of the wider squad and came to extra training every week to ensure the squad were match ready.
Mrs Jackson, Mrs Danaher and Mr “Netball” Coulson (extremely proud coaches).
