Highfields’ talented Year 9 netball team met the best the Midlands has to offer in the sport as they took part in the prestigious County Championships.
The team secured its place in the regional round of the Championships after previously being crowned Wolverhampton City winners.
The 10-strong squad battled through eight games, facing teams from as far as Stratford and Herefordshire.
Mrs J Brickwood, Assistant Head of PE, said: “We played through the wind, rain and sleet in some extreme weather
“They braved near Arctic conditions and continued to fight on after injury and losing a key player to A&E.
“They gave their all but unfortunately fell short of making it through to the national finals. Don’t worry though, we plan to be back next year!
“I felt extremely proud to be their manager.”
