U13 Netball City Champs!

U13 Netball City Champs!

On Wednesday night (14th October 2015) both the U13 A and B teams attended the city netball championships. Both teams entered the competition with confidence but knew there were some tough matches ahead. The A team began unbelievably strong, winning their first game against GEMS 16-0, and continued this winning streak in all of their matches, seeing them into the semi-finals as winners of their round. With another convincing win against St Mary’s, they qualified to the finals where they met Newcastle High School for Girls. After a nail-biting game and four minutes of extra time, the girls finally managed a 4-3 win, and were awarded the title of city champions (only the second time RGS have won this title since 2008!). The B team also had a successful first round, but unfortunately narrowly missed out on the trophy semi-finals; although they did qualify for the plate semi-finals and finals. They narrowly missed out in the finals to DAGS by 1 goal, leaving them 2nd place in the plate competition. Well done to all the players!
