Bromsgrove School’s U12 netball team has been crowned undefeated National IAPS Champions.
There were six group stage matches in the championships which were held on Friday 22nd March at Epsom College, Surrey.
The team had a magnificent start versus Taunton, winning 9-6. A very tough game followed against St Hugh’s but Bromsgrove held on for the win 8-7. In the match against Clifton College, the girls showed dominance throughout, to win 10-3. In the last three games, they beat Highfield School 7-2, Downsend 11-2 and St Faith’s 7-3. This placed Bromsgrove top of the group and through to the semi-final against Hurstpierpoint College. This was a very tense game, with both sides making mistakes, but Bromsgrove came out on top, winning 8 - 7. This put Bromsgrove in the National final against St Hugh’s, who they had already beaten in the group stage match. It went goal for goal in the first half, then Bromsgrove upped their game to pull away and win 10 - 6 and be crowned IAPS National Champions. This is something that a Bromsgrove U12 team has not done since 2007 – which happens to be the year that this team was born.
The U13s played some excellent netball during the championships, beating the defending National champions Farleigh School, taking home bronze medals and third best IAPS School placing in the country.
