First up were the U16 West Yorkshire squad playing Huddersfield Giants (2). Our girls took a brilliant win 35-14 making them undefeated, well deserved winners of the U16 West Yorkshire League. A massive achievement given most of the other teams are 1st teams. Well done to Maggie and Susie for their coaching and to all parent helpers. The U16A continue their nationals prep. U14s continue their Nationals prep and U12 continue to prepare for regionals and tournaments.
The Northern girls also had a convincing win 61-27 against Hull Chevrons giving them a final placing of second in this tough league. As usual, this was a well contested game, but our squad kept their composure and played some great netball! Huge thanks to Jan for all her work with this vary varied squad this season, good luck to all our injured players. Mixed emotions at the end with a few of these girls going off to University next season after playing for Leeds Athletic for many years.
Good luck to all our year 13 athletes during the upcoming exam period. We wish those leaving Leeds all the best for the future. Best of luck to our year 11 athletes preparing for GCSEs as well!
Our Final WY Senior Game was cancelled because the team couldn’t field a squad, this means we finish a very respectable 3rd in that league. Well done to all our athletes competing in this squad. Thanks to Jo for coach and admin.
Well done to our current players featuring in U21 closing weekend at Worcester. Good luck to those competing in the U19 closing weekend in Birmingham next weekend.
