Netball Squads Shine In Country Competitions

Published by Bedford Modern School on Wednesday 6th of December 2023

The BMS U14, U15 and U16 netball squads have excelled in the county rounds of this year’s England Netball National Schools Competition. This is one of the biggest school tournaments in the netball calendar, beginning in September and ending in March each year.

Our U14 and U15 squads both placed first in their competitions, held on 15 and 20 November respectively, crowning them county champions. Our U16 team narrowly missed out on the top spot at their tournament, held on 09 November, but comfortably secured second place. The U14s and U16s will now take part in the East Regional Schools competition which will take place at Stanborough School in January.

There is no further stage for the U15s who hold the county title for this year. They showed particular strength throughout their journey, securing their tough final match with a score of 11-7. Year 10 students and U15 co-captains Olivia and Alex, who will also play with the U16 at the regional rounds, said: “It was a tense match, everyone was putting a lot of effort in. We’re excited for regionals – our coaches are very helpful and know how to help us improve.”

The BMS U19 team placed third in their category, narrowly missing out on a qualifying place at the next stage but representing the school excellently.

Miss Brightman, Head of Netball at BMS, said: “I have been very impressed with the dedication the girls have put into preparing for these tournaments outside of the netball term. We are really looking forward to representing the county in the regional rounds and look forward to an exciting netball term ahead with all squads. The girls showed true grit, determination and pride for the school to get this fantastic set of results so early on in their season.”
