Netball success!



Sketty entered the Crimebeat Gower Schools netball tournament today and played exceptionally well! Ten teams took part and we qualified for the semi finals. They had a great time and showed fantastic sportsmanship.

The girls came first in their pool, winning 3 matches against Grange, Pennard and Bishopston 10-0, 4-3 and 3-0 respectively and drew 3-3 against Dunvant. They qualified for the semi finals but unfortunately lost out to Mayals.

The girls showed tremendous tenacity and team work. They proved themselves to be a strong and confident team and are already looking forward to the next tournament.

Huge thanks to Alison Brown for coaching and umpiring today.
