The Stamford High School First netball team went undefeated at The Perse School pre-season invitational tournament.

The team faced strong opposition from the local area and played seven matches throughout the day.

Stamford started the tournament with a match against Ipswich.

After a slow start, they got into a rhythm and came out with an impressive 11-9 victory. After finding their flow, the successes kept coming with wins against Uppingham (16-5), Perse (7-6), Framlingham (12-8), Kimbolton (11-9), and Culford (12-6). 

In the final match of the tournament, Stamford met the competition’s other undefeated side, Oundle.

The court was lined with coaches, students and parents, giving off the tension of a county final match.

Stamford started well and were leading at half time.

After an Oundle surge in the second half, the girls continued to play well and came out 14-11 winners 

Stamford High School PE teacher Cat Raitt said: “Well done to all the girls that played in the tournament.”
