County Champions

Congratulations to our Year 8 Netball team who became the County Champions on Thursday night. The team qualified for the Team Leicestershire Cup finals having won the Melton & Rutland Varsity League earlier in the term. In the quarter finals they travelled over to Thomas Estley College and won a very closely fought match 17v14. In The semi-finals they travelled to Belvoir High School but won convincingly this time 26v6.

This put the team through to the Team Leicestershire Finals night which took place at De Montfort University with six different finals taking place for all the age categories. The Year 8 Final with Loughborough High School proved to be the game of the night with the lead changing backwards and forwards throughout the match. The score finished

10v10 at the end of normal time and extra time was required to finally separate the teams.  In a thrilling finale the UCC team edged ahead in the last minute and managed to hold on to win 12v11. Congratulations to the whole squad for this fantastic achievement.
