Year 9 Netball V’s Peele School

The second game of the season and the year 9’s first home game this year took place on 29th September in glorious sunshine against Peele School, Long Sutton. The game started off well with both teams scoring during the first quarter with some great attacking play. With a complete change of team for the second quarter to allow for squad rotation, the girls battled well but the Peele attack were on fire and blasted themselves four goals ahead.

Moving into the second half, the squad rotated again and the quality of the play from defence to attack was fantastic and Deeping managed to pull back the deficit leaving it 8-8 going into the last quarter. The last quarter was certainly frantic with both teams making mistakes and turning the ball over. Great defensive play from sides saw the game finish 8-8; a fitting result. Players of the match were handed to Rebecca Groves and Hannah Donaldson from the opposing team. A good game girls, well done!!

Squad: Natasha Fox, Emily Bates, Eve Parker, Sammy Pinder, Rebecca Groves, Isobel Stewart, Lauren MacDonald, Emily McCann, Millie Lynch, Elise Nathan, Hannah Guest and Hannah Donaldson

Fenland League

The Fenland League consist of 3 individual races and a relay.  The first race was contested last week at Snowdon fields, Crowland and we managed to field four full teams despite injuries to some of our regular runners.  Many new runners raced for the first time and this was fantastic to see, they did a fantastic job and enjoyed themselves.

The first race has provided a bench mark for students and they will now be able to judge their progress at the future races.

Oli Welch, Hannah Knight and Eden Oldfield (year 8 students) started a strong campaign to gain individual places this year finishing 3rd, 5th and 10th in very strong fields.  They need to watch their back though as new year 7’s, Adam Blackbird and Elesha Foord finished strongly behind them in 12th.

Chloe Squires finished 8th in the Under 15 girls and Ethan Martin and Tom Wright finished 18th and 19th racing in the Under 15’s for the first time.

The next race in the league is at Stanground on Monday 05/10/15.



Under 19 Netball V’s Carres Grammar School

The under 19’s faced tough opponents – Carres Grammar - in their first game of the season. A mixed squad of year 12 and year13 this was to be the first time that they had taken to the court as a team in a competitive fixture. The squad consisted of: Louise Lindley, Heather Buttery, Jade Griffiths, Bella Winn, Evie Carlisle, Keira McHattie, Alicia Thompson, India Baines.

The pace of the game was dictated by a strong Carres team and ended with Deeping trailing 15-2. With a tactical change at quarter time- moving Keira McHattie back into defence to prevent the Carres team from penetrating the attacking third- Deeping managed to keep the score to 20-4.

The team showed great spirit and worked hard for each other showing great versatility and playing in a variety of positions throughout the game. The final score certainly did not reflect the girls’ effort and progress that they made.
