Hi 5 Netball Tournament at Wood Green School 21st February.
For the first time ever, The Batt School managed to enter four teams into a tournament. With games played at various locations on the north side of Witney, all the school teams were ready.
The A team competed against teams from Madley Brook, Queen Emma's, The Blake, North Leigh and Witney CP. They won four out of their five games, conceding three goals in the process, and scoring 21. They eventually finished second in their group; beaten only by The Blake who topped the group and were the eventual winners of the A tournament.
The B team played a round-robin tournament against five other teams, winning three games, drawing one and losing one. In the process they scored ten goals and conceded only one in the final game. Despite a concerted effort, the ball failed to go through the net and they eventually finished third in the tournament.
The C team also played in a round-robin against three other teams and like the B team they also only conceded one goal, scoring seven themselves. Unfortunately, the goal they conceded meant that they lost that game to the eventual winners, The Blake, having won their two previous games. Second place for the C team.
The D team had the unfortunate draw of joining the A tournament but despite this they played some excellent netball in their group stage only losing by one goal in two of their games. They won one of their games against The Blake B team, however they did not progress through the group stage.
Huge congratulations to all involved for taking part in a fantastic festival of netball and thank you to all the extra staff who gave up their time to manage all the teams
