A Team

On Sunday 28th June the Netball A team went to Tunbridge Wells High School to play a netball tournament for the Cardiomiopathy Charity. All the money that would be raised would go to that Charity.

We started off playing against Horsmonden. Despite our continuous efforts we lost 4-5.

Our second match was against Southborough. They were very strong players, but we tried really hard to get the ball up in our end of the court. We drew the game 3-3.

Just after our second match we all did the shooting competition. Afterwards we went to our third match against Pembury. But when we got to the court we found out that they hadn't showed up and so we won by forfeit.

After, we played against Langton. They were really good and we played our best but unfortunately we lost 3-5. We then played against St.Augustines, who won 6-4.

Finally our last match was against Speldhurst. They were really good and we lost 4-5.

As is was a very, very hot day we came 6th out of 6 schools! But it was all for Charity so we didn't mind as we raised over £2,200 and it was great fun. In the middle of the day an RAF fighter plane did a special fly over for us, but unfortunately they went a bit off course and instead of going over Tunbridge Wells High School, they went over Beechwood!!

Thank you to Mrs Waller, Mrs Mesher and Mrs Schone for supporting us, and well done to everyone who helped to raise all the money.

'A' Team; Sasha, Nadine, Maddy, Megan, Lauren, Suzan and Emily.

B Team Report

The B TeamOn Sunday 27th June, St James B Netball team, along with two year 5’s, Isabel and Hannah, went to Tunbridge Wells High School to play five matches for charity.

Our first match was against St Matthew’s School. They play very well but thanks to our excellent shooters, Olivia and Zoë, we won the match 5-2.

Our second match was against Speldhurst School. Again, our shooters were excellent. They were a bit better than St Matthew’s but everyone in our team played excellently again and we won 4-2.

Next we played Langton Green. All of our team were playing so well despite the heat and so were Langton. The final score was 5-2 to us.

Then we played Horsmonden. If we won this match, we were in the final. Their centre was very fast so it was hard to catch up with her. The final score was 2-1 to us so that meant we were in the final so we had one more match to play.

Our final match was against St John’s School. We were all very tired and were suffering with the heat however they played brilliantly. The final score was 5-2 to them. We came third overall in the league.

Thank you to Mrs Mesher for coaching us and Mrs Waller for organising it.

The A Team

On Saturday 25th April, the A team went to Tunbridge Wells High School to play a Netball Tournament. We started off playing against Horsmonden. Despite our continuous strong efforts, they won 4-2.

Our second match was against St. Augustine’s. They were very strong players, but we tried really hard to get the ball up in our end of the court. Unfortunately we lost the game 3-0.

Just after our second match our goal attack, Nadine and goal shooter, Maddy, did a shooting competition. In the end they got 10 shots out of 20. We then played what we thought would be our last match against St. John’s. We managed to keep the ball up by our goal and with excellent passing and shooting from Maddy and Nadine we won the game 5-1.

As we won against St. John’s we got to play three more matches which would determine our place as 9th, 10th, or 11th in the A team tournament. The first of the three matches we were left to play was against St. Peter’s. We were so excited, so we had lots of energy and we won the game 4-0. That meant we could come 9th or 10th.

Our second match was against Claremont. They were really tough to beat and the final score was a close 2-1 to them. Our final match of the day was against St. Paul’s. We really wanted to win our last match, so we tried really hard and the last score was 11-0 to us! That meant we were 10th out of 16 schools.

Thank you to Mrs Waller and Mrs Mesher for supporting us and to Mr Smith and Miss Church who came along to watch. Also thank you to the B team who cheered us on whilst they weren’t winning all the matches!!

Team: Suzan, Maddy, Nadine, Sasha, Lauren, Emily and Alice.

Report by Sasha and Nadine.

 

The B Team

We played five matches in total including the final. Our first match was against Horsmanden, they played well but we had amazing defences. The final score was 2-3 to us.

Our second match was against St.Augustine's. We had played them once before, so we knew their tactics. The final score was 2-3 to us.

Our third match was against St. Matthew’s. We played brilliantly and with our teamwork, we pulled through with a final score of 5-1 to us.

Our final match was against Pembury. We had never played them before so we didn’t know how well they could play. They were obviously a new team, and hadn’t had much experience. The over all score was 7-1 to us.

As we had won all of our four matches we were in the final. The deciding match was against Claremont. Our amazing centre Jodie was passing the ball as fast as lighting down the court. The over all score was 5-1to us.

When we had finished our matches there was a shooting competion. Which meant me and Olivia had to rush off. We tried really hard and came second.

Thank you to Mrs Mesher for umpiring and Mrs Waller for supporting us also thank to Mr Smith and Miss Church for coming and watching us and a big thank you to the ‘A’ team for cheering us on when they were not playing.

Team: Megan, Zoë, Francesca, Eleanor, Phoebe, Jodie Olivia and Jessica.

- 22 April 2009 01:19 - GeneralNetball B Team v Matfield & Brenchley

On Thursday the netball ‘B’ team played against Matfield and Brenchley at home. But as they were late to arrive we played a ‘friendly’ match against St. Augustine’s, as they had arrived to play against Matfield & Brenchley after us.

They played very well but we managed to stop all but one of their goals, so the final score was 4-1 to us. The score could have been very different as we only played a short game.

Matfield & Brenchley arrived ready for the match. We had two amazing year 5’s, Sophie R and Hannah J; they volunteered to play as we were down by two players. We played our best and had a successful win with the score 9-3 to us.
