Netball News

  The rain held off for the Year 7 Mendip Netball Tournament at Oakfield.  The team played well against 5 other schools within Mendip.  They haven’t had the opportunities to play other schools this season, so this was what the team needed. Fairlands School won the tournament, with Oakfield coming 4th.  They won 2 games, drew against Selwood and lost 2.  Once the goals started going in for Edith and Georgie, they scored some great shots, with Georgie getting a goal from a long way out in the D. Well done to all the girls who played and have taken part in the club. You’ve worked hard this year and played well.   MISS PULLEN
