Its been a fantastic year for Falmouth College’s netball team. The girls formed as a new team in September, made up of both Year 12 and 13 students and trained hard, bonding fantastically as a team. The girls got off to a flying start and hit the ground running with great success. During the season the girls played Nequay Treviglas Sixth Form, CSIA Sixth Form, Newquay Tretherras, Cornwall College, Helston College, Penwith College, Bodmin College, Truro College 3 and 4 and Callywith college in home and away games.

Part way through the season Falmouth College hosted the ‘Challenge Cup’, which involved many other colleges and sixth forms across Cornwall. Falmouth College went on to win the tournament following some superb displays. They finished off the season with a bang, as the team finished in 1st position within the sixth form and colleges Netball league, to mark a tremendous end to an outstanding season for the girls.

Head of PE Christy Benney, who coached the team throughout the season, said “I am so incredibly proud of the girls for winning both the league and the challenge cup this year. The girls applied a great deal of effort within their training and the fantastic relationship they built meant they were a force to be reckoned with when taking on their competitors. We will be sad to see some of the players leave this year, but welcome new players for September who would like to continue the success of this season, but also girls who want to play Netball to keep fit and for the fun and enjoyment of the sport. The girls certainly know how to have fun and will welcome new players with open arms.”
