SGS U11 Netballers Win North-West IAPS Tournament

U11 netballers | Stockport Grammar’s Junior SchoolThe U11 netballers at Stockport Grammar’s Junior School added more silverware to the school’s trophy cabinet by winning the North-West IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools) Tournament, hosted this time, at the school.

The girls got off to a flying start in the competition by topping their group to set up a semi-final against Liverpool College, and inspired by some first-class shooting from Jody Peters (10) from Woodford and Georgia Sykes (10) from Hazel Grove, the team beat Liverpool 8-4, meaning that they went on to play local rivals, Ladybarn House School in the final.

Team captain Ruby Mellor (11) from Cheadle Hulme talked us through the final: “We controlled the game in the first half with a great goal from Jody which meant we were 1-0 up at half-time. However, Ladybarn came out fighting in the second half and soon equalled the score. At this point our determination and team spirit kicked in, making the final score 5-2 so we won the tournament!
