U15 girls’ netball team are the North Devon Champions!

On Wednesday 22nd February 2017, the North Devon Schools Year 10 Netball tournament took place at Bideford School.

Well done to the year 10 girls who have played some outstanding netball this year. The squad of 11 managed to defeat all teams they met in the tournament, displaying excellent skills and team work. Captained by an exceptional leader Kiara Clarke, who made some great tactical team choices on the day. They won their pool, beating Pilton, Kingsley, Bideford, Ilfracombe and Braunton, with Pilton proving to be their toughest opponents out of the 5 games played. They then went on to face Shebbear in the semi- finals, which they won comfortably.

Finally, they were up against West Buckland in the finals and beat them 7-5! Again showing great defending and shooting skills.  Notably, Lydia Surridge has been a key player in this team, showing real determination, getting up from falls and continuing to play hard.

Congratulations to all girls who played!
