South Lee School’s Year 8 netball team are heading for the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS) national finals in Brighton this weekend.

Despite having a team mainly made up of girls from Year 7, they overcame Bishop’s Stortford 9-5, Chigwell 12-2, Greshams 8-5, Brandeston 10-1, Wellsley 14-2 and Junior Kings 14-2 to win their group.

They scored on the final whistle to dramatically defeat Greshams 10-9 and qualify for the national finals, but they could not end the day as regional victors after going down 10-7 to Stortford.
