Netball Tournament

9th May 2015

On Saturday morning fourteen year 3 and 4 girls from Russell arrived at Maulden Lower School for their first netball tournament. There was much excitement as the five teams warmed up, Maulden, Wilstead, Westoning and two teams from Russell Lower.

We split our girls into two mixed ability teams and Russell 1 started with a very hard match against Maulden. As the morning went on we improved enormously and showed much determination.

The winners were decided on points and one of our teams drew second place. The tension mounted as a play-off was suggested. The many spectators were on the edge of their seats but after much cheering the score was 0-0.

The girls supported each other well and the team-work was lovely to see. We are now looking forward to our next match.
