Oundle School will compete in the National Under 16 Finals later this year.

The local schoolgirls were crowned East Midlands champions after regional finals held at Oundle.

Oundle beat Spalding 9-2, West Bridgeford 13-3, Queen Elizabeth 9-7, Nottingham High 10-4, Oakham 10-2, Ecclestone 11-4, Ockbrook 11-4 and Quinton Hall 9-6.

Captain Hannah Wakeford said: “Our ability to work as a unit, value the ball and our determination enabled us to be crowned regional champions. We will continue to improve as the Nationals approach.”

Head of netball, Bev Burnham commented: “This was a super performance throughout the tournament by a spirited team. Having represented the East Midlands at the National finals as an Under 14 team last year, I am hoping they will draw on that experience to achieve a top result.”

On the same day the first team came third and the under 14 team came sixth in their respective tournaments.
