Netball 2001/02

1st Team Captain: Kate Mallord GH

The result of this year's 1st Team netball was a bit of a mixed bag, with two wins, four losses and one draw. However, we did defeat our old rivals West Buckland and King's Taunton, something we rarely do at netball. The team was generally a young developmental one with Emma Lyon-Smith, Lucy Simon, Becky Lancelles and Georgie Sawrey-Cookson all returning next year. Lucy, in particular, showed great agility and ability to read the game and she proved to be more than  match for most Goal Attacks.

Of the old guard, Polly Knowles showed all her experience and her handling skills often provided a lifeline for the team. With the new Blundell's kit being worn with pride, it was an enjoyable season considering our relatively inexperienced team. I am sure that they will be a force to be reckoned with next year as Blundell's girls' games continues to strengthen year by year. Kate Mallord
