Double win for the Southam Netball teams

Both the year 9 and 10 netball teams defeated Campion last night, in two big scoring games; 15-1 and 20-0.

The Year 9 girls started the game off extremely well in the cold conditions with some fantastic shooting from Marie Pavey, Amy Carro and Jodie Rigg. However the shooters would not have been as successful without the numerous turnovers and interceptions made from the defenders; Katie Cummings (captain) and Clarice Ellis-Greenway. The centre court players were strong in both attack and defence helping reduce Campion to only having 3 attempts on goal.

A huge effort from the girls and the supporters and scorers (Hope Aris, Megan Coats and Grace O’Kelly). Well done a well deserved win.

Southam started off strong winning the first quarter against Campion 6-0. The defence made up of Sophie Kirk and Rosie Hill ensured that Campion weren’t allowed any shots on goals. Eve Rhea, Maisie Powell, Jeri Jenkins, Sophia Lindsey and Ruby Harvey, Southam’s centre court applied pressure on the Campion team and managed to steal interceptions – moving the ball swiftly up court for Jess Frogley and Eve Murphy to attack with their accurate shooting. Campion did show a strong defence and intercepted passes from Southam to deny goals. Southam did well to maintain their strength and play their own game. A final score of 20-0 showed the immense pressure Southam applied. Overall a great game to watch with lots of excellent team play.

Battlefields Trip

A huge thank you to all of the students who came with us on the Battlefields Trip this week. Every single one of them was respectful, polite and considerate of others. We had many compliments from members of the public who were keen to tell us about the impeccable behaviour of our students. They all behaved with maturity and we are so proud of them.

Battlefields Trip Day 3 – 7.30pm

The students observed the Last Post ceremony impeccably and were a true credit to Southam College. We were particularly honoured that Hugh Cave was allowed to take part in the wreath laying ceremony. Hugh did an excellent job and it was such a proud moment for everyone on the trip.

All students are now on the coach and we are heading back to the hostel.
