Wellsway School netball success

PUPILS at Wellsway School in Keynsham have had a hugely successful netball season, with both the Year 8 and Year 9 teams reaching the West of England finals.

Year 9s had a double win at the B&NES tournament before beating Castle School 25-3 in the semi-final to qualify for the event at SGS College. The team also travelled to Bournemouth to compete in the regional round of the National Schools Tournament. They came away with a draw, some close defeats and a win to end the day on a high.

The Year 8 team (pictured) beat Winterbourne Academy in their semi-final.

The team also took part in the Mid State Tournament, held for the first time since the pandemic and hosted by Hanham Woods Academy. Wins against Oasis John Williams, Oasis Brislington, Hanham Woods and KLB and a defeat to Westfield Academy in the round robin event saw Wellsway finish second overall.A
