1st VII crowned National Champions
Congratulations to our Berkhamsted 1st VII Netball team, who were crowned National Schools Finals Champions 2023 on Saturday 11th March. They secured their title after a gruelling day of tournament play, against the best teams in the country. In their pool, they played against eight other schools, winning seven out of eight matches and beat Hartpury College, in a very close-run final, winning 11-10.
This is a phenomenal achievement for an incredible group of players. The girls endured two qualifying rounds to gain a place at the National Finals. Following the first round where they were undefeated against 10 other teams, became County Champions and then went onto compete in the Regional Finals representing Hertfordshire, in January.
The team will be competing in the Sisters n Sport National Netball Cup for Schools next week, where they will play Millfield in the Semi-Finals.
Huge credit goes to this talented generation, coached and supported by ambitious and dedicated staff, Mrs Wates, Mr Burgess, Mrs Holt and Mrs Costin. The hard work of staff and pupils has paid off and this title is so well deserved! This team of remarkable people have built their legacy and left their mark on Berkhamsted Netball forever.
