Bruton, 21 April 2017: After a gruelling season, Sexey’s School’s Year 8 netball squad was announced County Champions after winning all of their games in the Somerset County finals held at Millfield Senior School yesterday.
The girls won their matches 6-4 against The Castle School, 22-4 against Crispin and won their final game 10-6 against Haygrove to become overall winners. After coming second last year to Haygrove by only one goal, Captains Charlotte Howarth and Abbie Cooper were delighted with the result.
Commenting, Ms Katie Johnstone, Director of Sport at Sexey’s, said, “I’m so proud of the girls’ achievement in being named Somerset County Champions. They have put so much into this season, not only in the matches but in their practice sessions too and this success in the finals is testament to their enthusiasm, determination and team work. Well done ladies!”
