Year 11s score a first in Thornton history by beating staff in the traditional staff versus students netball fixture.
‘I taught them too well,’ is all an exhausted Miss Hickman could utter after being narrowly beaten by her students in a fast and furious netball game. The Year 11s fielded an exceptionally strong team for the annual stand-off against the sports staff, plus Mrs Goodall, Mrs Lawlor, Miss Burton and Mrs Lewis.
The staff held up under constant pressure to bring the score to a level 12-12 with seven minutes to go. Ellie P, on fire as Goal Shooter, however, scored another four goals in quick succession and the girls triumphed with a final score of 16-15. What a great game!
