U15 State School Netball Tournament
By Mrs Kenny
I had the pleasure in accompanying the following girls to the U15 State School Netball Tournament at TGGS:
Gemma Evans (Yr 9)
Skye Hamilton (Yr 9)
The girls were an absolute delight and a real credit to the Academy. They played some amazing netball, scored some great goals, grabbed some fantastic rebounds and made some brilliant interceptions.
Our first game against Devonport High School for Girls finished 3-14; the final result clearly doesn’t reflect the standard of play! We beat Churston 10-8, had a great game against a very experienced Ivybridge losing 11-3 and our toughest match by far was against St Peters!
The girls were full of respect and admiration for one another which was a pleasure to witness and player of the tournament goes to Holly Appleby. This young lady played with great tenacity and maturity. Furthermore she never lost her head when decisions didn’t appear to go our way and she kept reinforcing to all members of the team that they were all playing brilliantly. Once the tournament was over she said, “That was a great afternoon of Netball!”
