Netball-HOHSOn Thursday 14th November the U13 and U16 teams travelled to Framingham Earl for a netball fixture.

The U13 team, which was made up of Year 7 and 8 girls, tried really hard against a tough side. Although the final score was 15 – 0 to Framingham Earl, this score does not reflect how hard the girls worked and how determined they were.

Captain: Emily Catlin
Player of the Match: Aisling Kendall for some great dodging and passing – well done!

Netball-U13-teamNextball-U16-teamThe U16 team have been working brilliantly together and regularly attending netball training this term. Khloe Osborne (Year 10) stepped in at the last minute and played superbly as both WD and GS. All of the girls worked hard to maintain an early lead and the final score was 18 – 7 to HOHS. The U16 team were outstanding and really deserved this fantastic win.

Captain: Shannon Osborne
Player of the Match: Tammy Mahere for her consistent shooting and great movement in the attacking third.

Well done to all the girls!
