Year 7 Haringey Netball Championships

It was a beautiful day with lots of promise as the Year 7 Channing A and B Teams set off to Highgate for an afternoon of competitive netball.

The B Team had a good start beating Heartlands 5-2. Unfortunately they lost to Alexandra Park School 1-2 and suffered another loss in round 3 to Fortismere A. They came back strongly to win their next two matches and played for 5th and 6th place against Fortismere B, unfortunately losing by one goal. They finished in 6th place out of 11 teams.

The A Team also had a good start to the tournament winning 3 out of the 4 matches and drawing one match 1-1. This set them up for a semi final against Alexandra Park School who they beat comfortably. The win secured them a place in the final against St Thomas More School. Channing were 4-0 up at half-time. It was an exciting finish; Channing A stepped up to play the best Netball they have played all season to win the match 8-3 and the tournament.

They will now go on to represent Haringey at the London School Games this month. An outstanding performance and a fantastic achievement.
