PACA Netball Team Reach Final
On Tuesday 18th October, the Portslade Aldridge Community Academy year 11 girls’ netball team represented the academy in the Brighton and Hove netball tournament. In total, 12 teams entered, and they were initially placed into 2 pools. Following 5 games, which included wins against Steyning Grammar, Dorothy Stringer and Patcham, PACA finished 1st in their pool! This meant they made it through to the final! They came up against tough opposition in Brighton and Hove High School, and unfortunately lost, finishing in 2nd place overall. All PACA students were a credit to the school during the tournament. They played with passion and incredible team work, and should be incredibly proud of their 2nd place finish; their best result ever as a team.
The team was: Kathryn Bonner (captain), Zena Fawzy-Abdou, Martha Whitehouse-Eagle, Grace Holding, Isobel Emery, Madison Farley, Lucy Spalding and Natasha Blissett. Congratulations to Grace and Zena who were voted players’ of the tournament.
