DESC 7s Netball Tournament Thursday 15th November 2018
Our Y5 (A&B) Netball teams attended the annual DESC 7s Netball tournament. Both teams were bursting with energy and played 5 competitive matches against other schools in round 1. Their performances went from strength to strength, learning from each game and growing as a team. The A team made it to the plate final, coming 4th overall out of 12 teams in total. With combined Football and Netball scores, DESS won overall. The tournament was a great success – bring on the season ahead! Well done to all players.
BSME Netball Tournament Friday 16th November 2018
The BSME U11 Netball tournament was held at Kings School Al Barsha with 14 teams across the Middle East competing for the title. It is the second time a stand-alone BSME Netball tournament has been held for primary schools. Our girls played 6 games throughout round 1 against; KSAB, VHS, NAS, St Christophers School, BSM and JPS. The girls showed excellent collaboration and support for each other throughout each and every game, making it through to the quarter finals against Kings School Dubai. The tournament is at the start of their season and we are very excited for what is to come. Their tactical play and sportsmanship was outstanding and they should all be very proud of their performances.
Squad: Shannon De Silva, Abigail Ridout, Jessica Harris, Olivia Ashcroft, Madison Korte, Isla Edgar, Mariya Zahid, Esther Aribariho, Sophie Wingrove and Matilda Dando.
