Netball

Netball is the main sport for girls in the Spring Term at Blundells. Girls from years 9 to 13 are offered between three and four sessions of netball per week during the season. All girls have the opportunity to try out for one of the Blundell's teams. We run a 1st VII, 2nd VII, 3rd VII and 4th VII for years 11, 12 and 13, and A and B teams at Under 14 and Under 15 level. School House have matches for Under 13 A & B teams and the Under 12s also field two teams.

National Schools Area Round: U16 Winners. The U16 Netball squad competed in the area round of the National Schools competition this afternoon. It is an incredibly tough area and this year only the top four schools entered so every game was tight. As it is so early in the season the girls skill level is yet to really shine through, however Blundell’s determination and perseverance was evident in abundance.

We won the competition with the following results:

V Exeter School 7-7 Draw
V The Maynard 6-3 Win
V St Peter’s 8-6 Win

Devon County Finals: U16 3rd=

National Schools Area Round: U14 Runners-up

The U14s competed in the Area Round of the National Schools Competition this afternoon. All the teams proved tough competition. Our girls improved a huge amount as the afternoon progressed. All girls within the squad played their part and in particular Eve Nugent and Hebe Stone worked incredibly hard in defence.

V St Peter's 2-11 Lost (St Peter's were outstanding)
V The Maynard 12-7 Win
V Okehampton 14-3 Win
V Exeter School 10-9 Win

This means that the squad qualifies in second place for the County Round on Wednesday 22nd November. Fantastic!

Devon County U14 Finals: 3rd place

We won all our pool matches and then had an exceptionally close semi-final that really could have gone either way. We lost by two goals and then won the 3rd/4th play off convincingly.

V South A 6-4 Win
V East A 8-5 Win
V North A 9-8 Win
V West A 8-5 Win

Semi-final 8-10 Lost
3rd/4th play off 9-3 Win
