U15 County Champions!

What an amazing achievement! The U15 netball team played eight matches of almost continuous netball against the strongest teams in the County and came out on top!!

The weather was not particularly kind and the court surface was tricky, but Derby High started in top form with a win over Littleover. They then went on to win another six of their seven matches against local strong teams and previous winners such as Repton, Trent and QEGS, some by considerable margins!

The final match was a nail biter as play went from end to end and was still nil-nil at half time! A final push and superb teamwork led to Derby High beating Lady Manners in the final minute by four goals to three and the realisation that they were now County Champions!

The 11 players, all studying GCSE Physical Education, were a credit to the school and Mrs Hancock has thoroughly enjoyed coaching such a talented and cheerful group. The team were led by the captain Issi Bryon and her superb team were Katie Mitchell, Poppy Baker, Eliza Richold, Sophie Jacobs, Liv Dale, Connie Magill, Lydia Scott, Hannah Munns, Caitlin Oram and Lucy Rantzen.

A day to remember for sure!!
