Under 14 Hockey and Netball teams – Double County Champions!

Posted on November 30, 2016


Not only are we the Under 14 Devon hockey champions, but we are now also the Devon Netball champions for this age range courtesy of a fantastic victory at the County Championships on Thursday 24 November.

The team was invincible in all four of their pool matches against Sidmouth, Pilton, Teign and Ivybridge, accruing a total of 69 goals scored versus only 22 conceded.

The semi-finals against Park Community School, from Barnstaple, saw the tightest game of the entire competition. With less than two minutes until the final whistle, the team was trailing by three goals but they kept fighting and managed to score an incredible four goals in quick succession, clinching the match 14-13 with just seconds to go.

Although the finals were close, they were thankfully not nearly so tense, and a  9-7 victory against St. Peter’s sealed the County Championships.

The team now goes through to represent Devon at the Regional Finals on Saturday 28 January at Marlborough College where we will compete against the top schools in the region for a place at the National Finals. Our Under 19 Netball squad will also be representing Devon there, having secured their place as the Devon County runners-up recently.
