Thursday, 23 March 2017, Hummersknott Academy Y7 netball team attended a netball tournament at Polam Hall. We all felt very proud to represent the Academy and looked smart wearing our PE tops and new skorts, sponsored by Vision for Education.
Hummersknott played six games altogether, all of which we won, leaving us with an overall score of 26 points.
Unfortunately during the tournament we had two injuries: First of all Lauren cut her knee, however she came back on to court and continued to play to a high standard. Then Naomi suffered a twisted ankle and a cut to her knee and was unable to continue playing. Charlotte stepped into the role of Goal Shooter and played very well until the end of the tournament.
With 26 points in total at the end, we were top of the leader board - meaning Hummersknott Academy had won the tournament.
