The netball team have won all their matches so far in the Holsworthy High Five
netball league; and so were chosen to represent the Holsworthy Learning
Community in the North Devon round of the County Championship. They
braved high winds and rain to play at Bideford College along with the top 15
teams from across North Devon. They excelled themselves against strong
competition and didn’t lose a match in the first round in the morning.
After a lunch spent sitting on the playground in the rain they progressed to
the semi finals where they came across Kingsacre School and, despite taking an
early lead, suffered their first loss. This meant they went into the playoffs where they finished a very creditable 6th out of 16, which is a fantastic
achievement for such a small school. Despite the atrocious weather and lack of
shelter the children kept going to the end, we are very proud of them.
Kingsacre were one of the eventual 2 winners going through to next round.
