The under 16 girls basketball team got off to a terrific start this term. Their first game was against Angmering. The first half was tough but the girls worked together fantastically. They were tight on their players in defence and created scoring opportunities in attack. Angmering put up a good fight, but we managed to beat them 18-16.
Our second two fixtures were against Sion A and B team. The game against the A team was incredibly close. Sion pulled ahead in the first few minutes but Durrington managed to be up by one goal at half time. They continued to play well and the final result was 26-22 to Durrington. The girls then went on to beat the B team 34-22. Special mention to Katy Begley, Alice Bowls, Rachel Wilson and Louisa Hughes who played exceptionally well.
The year 8 and 9 netball team also began their league last week. The year 8 A team played fantastically and won all of their matches, which included Durrington B team, Angmering A and Chatsmore. They have some brilliant players and think they will do very well in this league… watch this space! The B team won against The Littlehampton Academy 17-1. A great achievement.
