U13 Kent County Netball Tournament 2012
The U13 Netball team travelled over to Aylesford to take part in the annual county netball championships. With 70 schools taking part the morning was divided into several groups, with 7 schools in each group. The U13’s battled hard and applied continued controlled pressure in each of their six games – after winning all first round matches the SDC teachers, parents and players travelled over to the Rainham site for the afternoon stage of the competition.
Round two was tougher than the first stage; however the girls remained strong and focussed whilst playing against Newstead Woods which resulted in another win. SDC were now in the quarter finals and went through to face the strongest eight remaining schools. SDC faced Bromley High in the quarters and again came away with another win. The SDC U13 team stormed through into the semi-finals to face Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar School (TWGGS).
Overall the play was fantastic from the U13’s who narrowly lost out on a spot in the final to TWGGS, however, they finished in fourth place overall proving themselves to be one of the best teams in the county. It was a superb day of netball with the girls showing both technical and tactical strength to beat the majority of the oppositions. Well done SDC U13’s on a very impressive display of both netball and determination to succeed.
