15th March 2016 — After almost four years of unbeaten netball matches and after winning four tournaments Caterham Prep School’s under 11s girls netball team secured silver medal position at the National IAPS Netball Finals on Saturday 12 March 2016.
A tough morning of matches at the final, held at Roedean School in Brighton, consisted of nine matches of which the Caterham team won all. A notable 8-2 victory over the famous sports school Millfield was the highlight of the morning. The girls scored 82 goals, conceding 37, to top their group.
Next came the play-offs with a win against Kew Green School in the quarter finals and The Manor School, Abingdon in the semi finals. The nail-biting final against Hoe Bridge School saw Caterham secure the silver spot, having beaten 254 schools to reach their end placing.
Mr Howard Tuckett, Headmaster of Caterham Prep School said: “This is an incredible achievement and means that this very special team remain unbeaten in the full format of the game throughout their entire netballing career at the School. The girls played some awesome netball throughout the morning to sweep all challengers to one side. The commitment, enthusiasm and delightfully skilful netball was a sight to behold.
My special thanks go to their coaches, Mrs Williams and Mrs Hopkins, who hopefully will see their ‘dream team’ progress to both senior school and Surrey School honours over the next few years.”
