1181 Sqn playing Netball

On Sunday 6th March, Cadets Hopkinson, Lawson and Watson-Evans went to RAF Cottesmore to play for South & East Midlands Wing Junior Netball team.

Despite the court being very small, the girls made a storming start beating Beds & Cambs Wing 8-0. Unfortunately the standard this year was very high throughout the Region. The girls put everything they had into it, and finished quite battered and bruised, but they could not repeat the first match success and came away finishing in fifth place.

We were all very proud of the effort the girls put in, and the support of those cadets who did not manage to get into the squad. Cadet Heather Lawson was also selected to go forward to Region Trials. A very big well done to all of you!
