Taunton School Netball Teams celebrate a season of success

Posted: 27th March 2023

The senior netball teams at Taunton School are celebrating one of their most successful seasons to date. Across all age ranges, the Spring term has been jam-packed with matches, and some
brilliant wins.

Taunton’s under-19, under-16 and under-14 teams all qualified for the South West Regional Finals in Bournemouth last month – one of only two schools to have representatives in every
age group of the competition.

The under-14 team was crowned South West Netball Champions, with the under-16s and under19s narrowly missing out on a place in the semi-finals. The under-14s subsequently went on to finish in the top 10 at the National Schools Netball Finals in Peterborough.

“To have three teams representing Taunton School at the regional championships was amazing,” said Head of Netball, Lisa Manley. “It’s brilliant to see the girls playing so well. They all
excelled on the day and I am very proud of them.”

This season the under-16s were captained by Zoe who was also selected to represent Northern Ireland at the European Championships in February.

“What a season!” said Miss Manley. “All the teams are a real credit to the school. To also have one of our girls selected to play for a national team is just brilliant – and inspirational for all our
other students who love the sport.”
