On Tuesday 3rd October our Meridian Netball girls took part in an exciting double victory against Harris Crystal Palace.
In their first game wearing the Meridian colours, our Year 7s did not hesitate to get off to a winning start with a 8-0 victory.
With the team consisting of Jessica Thorpe, Amber Butcher, Zoe Thorpe, Kristodia Danso, Letisha Bowall-Simpson, Tatiana Veira and Captain Shelby Sellers, the year 7s grew in confidence throughout and were all playing with smiles on their faces to the end.
With the scheduled Year 8 game on straight after, Kacey Blundell and Paige Thrope were the only representatives for our Year 8s on this occasion. Enter the Year 7s to step in and help out... and what another great performance from them all! With more of a challenge for our save-the-day Year 7s, playing against students a year above, they all relished the opportunity and concurred (again) with a 6-2 victory.
A special mention goes out to Year 7 student Shelby Sellers. Shelby exceed her reputation as a Year 6 Netball player from neighbouring primary school Fairchildes. With her confident and relentless shooting in both games Shelby is one to watch through her Meridian Netball days.
