Netball success!

The 1st VII Netball Team made history in March by winning the Fastnet Tournament at Seaford College for the first time. A 11-6 victory against Seaford 2nd team was the start of a very successful afternoon. The girls worked tirelessly in a set of exhausting matches to beat Worth and Burgess Hill, with special mention to Tash C who was injured but kept playing. The final match in the group was against Portsmouth Grammar School, who were unbeaten until Lancing took them on. A 15-0 victory followed with the highlight of the game being a goal from Lydia B from outside the circle in the final moments of the power play section, to give Lancing 6 points. The team placed first in the group, so took on Itchen Sixth Form College in the semis. A comfortable 10-5 win meant Lancing was in the final. In the final we took Epsom, who had been unbeaten until that point, and a controversial 9-9 draw at full time led to a nail-biting extra time of two minutes. Lancing kept a cool head to finish 10-9 and win the tournament! MVP for the tournament was Bella M for her incredible centre court play and interceptions.
Well done to the team for this fantastic achievement!
