This County tournament for U15 teams was divided into two sections, each team playing 5 matches of 8 minutes each way.

Pate's had a difficult start playing a strong High School side. It was a fantastic match with High School just stealing the victory 7-6.

The next game was a very tentative win v CLC by one goal despite Pate's having most of the possession.

Good wins v Cleeve (13-3), KLB (9-4), and Chosen Hill (13-1) followed, despite Pate’s not always playing their best netball. This placed the U15’s 2nd in the section behind High School.

It was great to get to the finals and even better when the team recaptured their best netball against Ribston in the semi's winning convincingly 7-1 and then a re-match with High School in the final!

This time Pate's made the most of their chances in a tense match to win 5-3 and take the May Dent trophy!

Well done to the whole squad-County Champions!!

HELENA COX, MADDY ROPER, ALICE COOPER, IZZY OSUDE, MADDIE DALGLEISH, T GOWRISHA ANNIE SCOTT, JEMIMA JONES, CONNIE TRENDLE.

‘In what will be my final year coaching U15’s at Pate’s I wanted to say how very proud I am of the performance and achievements of the four U15 netball teams I have coached since retiring full time teaching at Pate’s. Thank you all the girl’s in those four years for some very rewarding and fun experiences. In particular, to the girls this year for making it 3 May Dent trophies in a row!!’ I hope to see you all playing netball for the years to come!
