Champions!

Congratulations to the Year 7 and 8 Girls' Netball teams who covered themselves in glory at the recent Liverpool Schools' Netball Champions League. The hard work put in by the Year 8 team and their coach, Mrs Whittle has resulted in an unprecedented ten match unbeaten run to claim the championship. The last time FHS did this was over 25 years ago! Mrs Whittle commented, "We are very proud of the girls' hard work, commitment and sheer determination to improve with each game. Our team talks always finish with the phrase, "Just enjoy the game!'

The girls are a credit to the school. Like the Year 8 team, the Year 7 team have been a force to be reckoned with and remained unbeaten for the whole of the season and were crowned Liverpool Schools' Year 7 Champions 2010-1011 having demonstrated fantastic passing, defending and shooting techniques. They showed great sportsmanship throughout the entire season. The girls' coach, Miss Smith commented, "I am extremely proud of the girls.

They have shown all of the qualities required to be successful and truly understand what it means to be part of a team. I look forward to working with them next year."
