12 March - High 5 Netball - Large Schools - Years 5&6 Mixed - South Somerset County Qualifier

On a cold wet day at Westfield Academy, 11 teams from the South Somerset region competed against each other to qualify for the High 5 Netball County Finals. The format was 2 mini leagues of 5 & 6 teams respectively, where the teams would play each other once, and the top 2 from each league would qualify for the County Championships at Millfield School in April.

A very competitive competition followed, with an excellent standard of Netball demonstrated by all the children. League A was a very tight contest, and went down to the last games before the qualifiers were clear, with East Coker and Tatworth finishing in 1st and 2nd spots, and Milford and Keinton Mandeville in 3rd and 4th pushing the top 2 all the way after some very tight games in a closely fought group. League B was a clearer affair, with Redstart and Castle Cary finishing in 1st and 2nd spots respectively, and St Gildas coming in a close third. Special mention must go to Curry Rivel who qualified through to this event as a small school in a large schools competition, they battled exceedingly hard in every game and represented their school very well indeed.

Huge congratulations to our County qualifiers, East Coker, Redstart, Tatworth and Castle Cary and to our reserves St Gildas and Milford. Big thanks to Westfield for hosting us, and special thanks to the Westfield and Bucklers Mead leaders who endured the cold to help the event run smoothly, without the leaders' it wouldn't happen. Furthermore, huge thanks to Becky Divall from Ash for her assistance and Netball expertise, and to Rachel Middlemast from Westfield for her support throughout the day.
