This year the girls had set their goal of winning the tournament and worked tirelessly in the weeks running up to the event to ensure their fitness, set plays and various combinations were all finely tuned for the big day.
George Salter got off to an excellent start with a 15 – 2 victory over John Fisher and made their intentions of producing fast but safe transitions through the court very evident. The second game saw a very tall opposition in Kings Worcester; however this resulted in smart play by our girls not using any high balls and subsequently winning 11-1. Next up was Tudor Grange who, like George Salter, has many Regional Academy players so it was set to be a tight encounter. However through excellent leadership from captain Grace Porter-Deleon and outstanding shooting from Nasara Arnett and Tumba Katanda the game finished with a 14 – 6 win. The next few games against King Edwards Bham, Hereford and Church Stretton were again convincing wins with the George’s girls turning over some excellent defensive interceptions and causing a lot of issues for the opposing teams.
