Our 2021-22 Netball team is the first Writtle team to stay undefeated for half a season in over 5 years!
Yesterday saw the girls face King's College for a second time, at their London home ground. The game started strong for both sides as it saw the teams go goal-for-goal ending the quarter 8-8. The 2nd quarter was just as tight, with a very strong defensive team put up by King's College, but Writtle manage to pull away with a 3 point lead by half-time.
The girls regrouped at half-time, having a positive team talk with the coach, and went into the second half stronger and hungrier for the win. The Writtle team attacked hard and defended even harder, which saw them pull away spectacularly in the 3rd and 4th quarter, finishing with a 38-17 win! Captain Abi Heard said "I am so proud of the girls and what we have achieved as a team staying undefeated through the first half of the season," with Holly Wareham adding "It's been amazing start, I'm so proud of the girls, bring on 2022 - I can't wait!"
The girls have worked incredibly hard in training over the past couple of months - come rain, shine or hail! Coach Amy Grimsey says "It's an absolute joy working with these girls and seeing their growth as a team and individually week-on-week! They all listen to feedback and take training seriously, implementing the training into their game play, which is getting better with every match! I'm so excited to see what the second half of the season brings!"
