Year 10 Netball

The year 10 netball team last night headed to Princethorpe for a friendly match. The team had a tough match with Princethorpe players dominating some of the play, however a huge team effort meant Southam never gave up!! Some amazing shooting from Madi Smith and Cara Andrews with the support of Carmen Ellis Greenway, Cerys James and Kacie Morby meant that the team worked well together working the ball through the court. Lucy Parker, Alice Dillon and Ruby Cole had a tough time in defence but worked together to pressure the Princethorpe attack. The whole team kept their heads up throughout and although lost overall, there were some positives to take away! Looking forward to the next few games before they head to PGL on their Netball Trip.
