Schools do battle at Netherhall School

St Alban’s Primary School were victorious in the Cambridge School Sports Partnership High 5 A Team Netball Championships at Netherhall School.

The 16 primary schools taking part in the competition were split into three pools, with each team playing each other once to determine the semi-finalists.

St Alban’s, Milton Road and William Westley were the three group winners, while Queen Edith qualified for the last four as the highest runners-up.

The final was contested between St Alban’s and Milton Road, with St Alban’s emerging victorious, while William Westley beat Queen Edith to third place. All four go forward to represent Cambridge at the county finals.

Cherry Hinton were awarded the Spirit of the Games Award for their hard work and respect through the competition, which was run by young sport leaders from Netherhall.

Cath Heron, the Cambridge School Sport Partnership manager, said: “Every team that has competed has made an amazing contribution to the competition, and have all played amazingly well.

“The determination from each individual was inspiring to all members taking part. The amount of teamwork and effort has shown how young people can aspire to be great and tackle any challenges given.

“The support was magnificent towards the players because of their tactics, advice and cheering on. In addition, the enthusiasm increased throughout the afternoon.

“There were some high-quality shots and passes, from people at such a young age. All players were involved showed great sportsmanship.”
