    West Hatch High School’s Year 7 netball team crowned district champions

    The Year 7 netball team at West Hatch High School, Chigwell, have been crowned West Essex District Champions after being unbeaten in the district league which ran from September to March.

    They progressed to the play-offs on Tuesday (March 24) and beat Harlow champions Burnt Mill 16-14, having fought back from 5-1 down, to be West Essex and Harlow District Champions.

    The Year 8 girls were also West Essex District Champions however they were beaten by St Marks in the play-off final.

    Coralie Reid, Head of PE at West Hatch, said: “The girls narrowly missed out to a place in the semi -final of the Essex Cup to Bancroft’s School a few weeks ago so this was a really nice way to end the year.

    “They all played really well. The player of the match as picked by the opposition was Isobel Barry.”

    Mrs Reid added: “That is the end of the netball year but the girls are already looking forward to next season and will all be representing the school athletics team next term.”
