Year 8 and 10 had their first netball fixture of the year against Thomas Clarkson last week.
On Wednesday 14 September 2016, the Year 10 Neale-Wade Academy Netball team played against Thomas Clarkson Academy. The team members, Megan Hubbard, Holly Newell, Charley Mulliner, Georgia Clarke, Tegan Gilbert, Sophie Tanner, Amey Wilson and Jess Carse, combined and played excellently. There was some great defending by Jess at GK, along with excellent court links which allowed Holly Newell and Megan Hubbard some fantastic shooting opportunities. This resulted in a very good win of 24-3.

Miss Bywater, team coach said "It was fantastic to see both teams playing on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Both teams played excellently, with calm attacking play, whilst the defense was solid with fantastic interceptions all over the court. Despite this game being some of the girls first game since last year, their shooting was impressive from all areas of the shooting D. It was evident that team moral was high on court as they all worked for one another. It was evident that the girls wanted to win and their determination was something to admire. An excellent start to the netball season for both teams, well done girls!”
