Gallery: Superb win for 1st VII Netball side
September 23, 2022

Rydal Penrhos’ 1st VII netball side turned in an outstanding display to triumph over Glan Clwyd on home soil earlier this week.

It’s been a busy start to the sporting calendar for Rydal Penrhos pupils, who’ve acquitted themselves extremely well in a competitive environment so far. This comes after an impressive pre-season camp held shortly before the start of term, which improved areas such as conditioning, teamwork and technical aspects to ensure they were ready to hit the ground running.

Another impressive example of this cohesion came from the First VII netball side this week, who took on Ysgol Glan Clwyd at the school’s Sports Hall on Wednesday 21 September.

The group began the contest on the front foot, with Ruby Merrick and Eloise Chapman providing the sharp-shooting to put them in charge early on by remaining composed when scoring opportunities came their way.

This momentum was built upon later in the contest en route to an outstanding 23-6 victory. Emily Thomas marshalled proceedings exceptionally from the centre position, with the likes of Elsi Pyves, Ester Ball-Iversen, Eve Durrans and Lily Davies creating plenty of chances for Rydal Penrhos throughout.

Defensively, Rydal Penrhos was at the top of their game from start to finish. Sophie Madden’s command of the scoring area was particularly impressive.

Motivation, team chemistry and organisation were all major contributing factors behind the success, which will stand the squad in tremendous stead as they look to accumulate similar results throughout their remaining fixtures during the Advent Term.

It was a real team effort to reach their goals. Everyone at Rydal Penrhos would like to congratulate the First VII netball squad on another eye-catching result and on representing the school positively.
