Similar to their Year 9 counterparts, the year 8 team have also had a fantastic seaon, winning all their matches to earn a place in the NEEBSA league finals held in Magherafelt High School on Monday 24th March 2014.
The girls had won their section with ease and had to play the winners of the other sections, Belfast High School. Belfast High School are a much larger school, with a greater pool of players and our girls always knew it would take a huge effort to beat them but them they did.
The team worked really hard, encouraging and helping one another at every opportunity to ensure the team got the result they wanted. Jayne and Neha worked particularly well toegther, giving the Belfast High defenders a real run for their money.
The girls won the game convincgly in the end, 22-5 and were overjoyed at winning their first ever trophy and medals for the team. Mr Elder presented the girls with their medals and the victorious captain Ellen Bates with the trophy. Well done girls!
