- U16 go to Nationals!!!
An impressive U16 squad won the regional tournament on 6th March
Hucclecote U16s won the Netball South West Regional Tournament in Bath today (Sunday, 6 April) and now represent the region in the National Tournament to be held at Wolverhampton University next Saturday, 12 April.
The team beat Exeter 40-15, Pinehurst 24-10 and in an extremely tense decider beat Jersey 27-25, to win the tournament and remain unbeaten as a squad in all matches this season.
As well as receiving a team trophy and individual medals for winning the overall competition, Hucclecote also picked up awards for winning the North Region competition that secured their place for today's tournament. These were presented by Bath and England player, Rachel Dunn.
Well done to the whole squad: Lily Simmonds (captain), Rhianna Hallbrook, Fran Preedy, Mary Crapper, Helen Werrell, Sam Cook, Beth Perry, Ella Gardner, Hannah Jones, Tanya White, the coaches Liz Banyard and Arnie Brown and to all the supporters, who were great.
What a brilliant day! Let's do it again next Saturday at Nationals!
