The NBHS S3 netball team is celebrating after winning the Scottish Schools Gold Cup. This is the second time the girls have lifted the cup, having also won as S1s in 2017.
The girls started their campaign in October and have remained unbeaten throughout the competition. They topped the group stage, sending them directly into the Gold stream. NBHS then went on to beat Glasgow Gaelic School 55:25 at home in the 3rd round, before being drawn in a difficult fixture away to Peebles – last year’s cup holders – in the next round, a challenge which the girls took in their stride, winning 44:32. The semi-final was against last year’s losing finalists Douglas Ewart High School, and again the girls comfortably took victory 45:30 which put them into the finals against Holyrood High School – the team which knocked them out last year. Once the girls took to the court at the finals it was clear they were in it to win it. Holyrood fought till the very end but NBHS was too strong and the final score was an emphatic 50:22.
Another fantastic achievement – congratulations girls!
Team: Sophie Hetherington, Lois Turnbull, Katie Lennock (c), Grace Tremlett, Annabelle Conroy, Keira Maynard, Ellen Maslen, Marcia Callander and Ella Malaika Spring.
