Posted: 11th April 2024

In the world of sports, where passion meets determination, the members of the Taunton School netball teams have exemplified what it means to strive for excellence and embody team spirit. This season has been nothing short of spectacular, with achievements that speak volumes about the hard work, dedication, and unity of the players and coaching staff.

With 15 teams, over 150 players, and 133 matches that culminated in a staggering 2284 match day goals (and that’s not even counting the tournaments), this season has been a whirlwind of excitement, growth, and lots of fun. It’s a testament to the vibrant netball culture at Taunton School and the unwavering support from the community.

Special accolades go to the U15D team for their unbeaten streak this season, a remarkable feat that underscores their skill, teamwork, and perseverance. Not to be outdone, the senior 1st team also showcased their dominance by winning all their matches, except for a challenging encounter with the formidable Team Bath U18 team. They then went on to win the Collegiate 7s Festival and the Somerset U19 County Cup!

The U16s carried the flag for Somerset at the Regional Schools finals, showcasing their talents on a larger stage and proving their mettle against the best in the region. Meanwhile, the U15 girls reached the quarterfinals of the Sports Magazine Cup and secured the runner-up position at the Somerset U15 County Cup.

If that’s not all, several players were selected for the England Netball Pathway! A testament to their exceptional skill, dedication, and potential. This recognition is not only a personal achievement for the players but also a reflection of the quality of coaching and support provided at Taunton School.

The Netball Award Winners segment highlighted individuals who have shown remarkable improvement, exceptional skill, and unwavering team spirit. From Scarlett Hogben’s Most Improved Player of the Season in the 1st team to Daisy Greenhalgh’s Players’ Player of the Season in the U15D team, each award recipient has contributed significantly to their team’s success and the sport’s growth at Taunton School.

Congratulations to all the players, coaches, and everyone involved in making this season a phenomenal success!
