Year 7 & 8 Netball
Thursday 20th January 2022
“The first sporting event since the formation of the Emmaus partnership was an under 12 and under 13 Netball tournament hosted by St Benedict’s at Perivale playing fields. During the tournament, there were around eighty girls from St Benedict’s, Sacred Heart High, The Cardinal Wiseman and St Augustine’s, in which was, due to the cancellation of last season, one of the first opportunities for players in both year groups to represent their school at netball. The tournament was fast paced and action packed, with four matches being run concurrently and just a short break in between matches, meaning rotating players was essential. Whilst the competitive nature of fixtures was ever present, what was equally notable was the spirit in which the games were played in, and how all pupils involved conducted themselves throughout.
In the under 12 tournament, Cardinal Wiseman placed fourth, St Augustine’s third, Sacred Heart High second and St Benedict’s first. Whilst in the under 13 event, St Benedict’s B who were a last minute replacement for St Augustine’s placed fourth, Cardinal Wiseman third, Sacred Heart High second with St Benedict’s A’s running out the winners. This meant that overall, St Benedict’s were crowned champions and got to take home the Emmaus trophy.
We would like to extend a massive thank you for all pupils and staff members who helped make this debut Emmaus sport event so special, and we look forward to more competitions in the future.”
