12 Oct U16 Netball Essex Cup
The Year 10 netball squad represented JRCS in the first round of the U16 Essex Cup in an away fixture at West Hatch School, Chigwell. The team were a little anxious before the match as we were greeted by a very tall Year 11 team made up of GCSE PE netballers however, the girls controlled their anxieties and we narrowly lost the 1st quarter 4-3. Once they realised they were in with a chance they surged ahead in the 2nd and 3rd quarters and we ended up winning the match 15-6. I am really proud of the resilience demonstrated by the girls as we only took a small squad and positive mind set shown by them all.
I look forward to the second round where we will host Westcliffe High in a home fixture. Congratulations to all the girls involved.
