U14s Net County Credit
Cheadle Hulme School’s U14 Netballers gained county recognition when they became Runners-Up in the Greater Manchester Schools Tournament, in March.
The girls made an excellent start to the day with a run of unbeaten play in the group stages, against Withington Girls’, St. Bede’s, Bury Grammar, Loreto and St. Monica’s.
This put the team in to top spot of their section and through to the Semi-Finals against Wright Robinson, in a very close and competitive game which went to extra-time. CHS dominated the extra few minutes to win the match convincingly, 9-5.
In the Final they met Loreto, who they had already drawn against in the group stages. Team Coach, Miss Alison Sharp said: “It was a very close game but nerves got the better of the team and they lost 2-5. They finished as very well deserved County Runners-Up, however – congratulations to all of them.”
