Netball: Bede’s Prep 1st VII Claim Runner Up Spot in IAPS Nationals

Bede's Prep School's 1sts VII played well in the IAPS National Netball Competition but were let down by a few too many unforced errors on the day.

Despite hearty 7-4, 8-2 and 6-4 wins against Marlborough, Bedales and Great Walstead, and a 3-3 draw against Sevenoaks Prep School, competition from the likes of Brighton College Prep School, St Christopher's and The Hawthorns proved too much.

Heads of Games at Bede's Prep Sharon Muxworthy said of the girls' performance, "The 1st VII had their opportunities in games we may well have won with a little more composure, but ultimately a few errors proved costly in our point ratio."

Bede's Director of Sport Andy Hibbert added, "Tournaments are always about momentum and our first game against Brighton College saw our confidence knocked a little when we could not execute our shots on goal. However, the team did dig deep and try and fight for a top four position but it was just too much to do in such short quarters."

Irrespective of the result, the girls had a great day in the Spring sunshine and the U12s are now hungry for their chance to win the competition next year.
