Wednesday 16th November saw eight Year 7 girls from Tonypandy Community College set off to Tylorstown Sports Centre for a Year 7 netball tournament.
The newly formed team of Tyler Radcliffe, Brittany Evans, Abigail Ceesay, Becky Brewer, Chloe Edwards, Kira O’Reily, Cora Lewis-Lee and Paris Jones were excited and nervous at the thought of playing some familiar and unfamiliar teams at the tournament.
Although the girls had lost their first two previous netball games at school against Treorchy and Ferndale, they were aiming high for the tournament.
The first game against Hawthorn the girls played brilliantly and won 3-1. They won 3 games in a row and then sadly, narrowly missed out on a semi final place when they lost their final two games.
Although they didn’t get through to the semis the girls were really enthusiastic and proud of their performance.
There is a massive improvement in them as a team and as individual players and we are confident that the next tournament they go to they will be even better!!
