Barton Peveril Sixth Form College’s Netball First Team placed third in the National Schools Regional Netball Competition on Saturday 25th January 2020.
The Barton Peveril Team faced an elite set of opponents, placing third out of 14 high-level teams from across the South. Barton Peveril was one of the only Sixth Form Colleges participating in the competition.
Speaking on the Team’s achievement, Barton Peveril student and former Brookfield Community School pupil Liberty Griffin said:
‘I was proud to lead our team of talented young players to our best ever achievement within the national competition. It was a great opportunity to demonstrate our versatility and teamwork to beat some very good opponents from the rest of the region. We are thrilled by our achievement and we are looking forward to the rest of the season.’
Vice-Captain Rhea Scarlett, who previously attended Swanmore College, also commented on the success:
‘As Vice-Captain of the Netball Team, I am so proud of everyone. We worked so hard with such enthusiasm and came out with a positive 3rd place, at such a high-level Netball Tournament.’
Barton Peveril Teacher of Sport, Alix Christopher, said:
‘I’m so proud of all the players. It was a very long, cold day but the girls were fantastic and played their absolute hearts out. With most of the competition being private schools, I’m so proud of all the students.’
