Under 19 Netball Team
On Sunday, 29 January, the Under 19 Netball Team participated in the South East and London Regional Finals at Redbridge Sports Centre in Essex. The first match was an extremely close game with the girls fighting hard and working brilliantly as a team, narrowing missing out on a 13-10 loss. This was a magnificent achievement, considering the school they were playing against was a Netball Academy, who are trained by Kadeen Corbin (an England Netball player)! Despite the wet and cold weather, and the tough competition that the girls were up against, they were superb with great attacking skills and some brilliant interceptions. Unfortunately, the girls did not make it through to the National’s. However, the team achieved 6th place in the South East and London Region and have done Invicta incredibly proud.
Barking Abbey vs Invicta 13 -10

Thank you to Mrs Smart and Mrs Newark for coaching the girls, and the rest of the PE Department for supporting them during the tournament.
