Netball Teams Celebrate Victory

Ashby's netball teams were celebrating after almost  sweeping the board in the Charnwood Netball League.

The under 15 and under 16 sides both won the double, coming top in the Charnwood League and the tournament.

The under 19 side finished second, losing out to Welbeck Sixth Form Defence College.

In the league, teams from across Charnwood play each other home and away to detemine who wins the competition.

This is followed by a knock-out tournament in which all the teams play each other again.

Head of PE Vikki Rundle-Brown said: "I am very proud. Despite all the pressure of exams and revision, the netball clubs have a fantastic turn out every single week. There are always more than 30 students turning up after school.

"In fact, the Year 10 attendance was so good this year that we were able to field two teams."

Special mention must go to the Player of the Season for each team. They were Tasha Barnes in Year 10, Ellie Nicholson in Year 11 and Hattie Johns in Year 12.
