Thorndown Triumph at Bee Netball Competition

The Hunts School Sports Partnership returned to St Ivo Academy on Tuesday 19th March for the first of two Year 5/6 Bee Netball competitions for Huntingdonshire primary schools this academic year. The event welcomed over 110 Year 5 and 6 children from local primary schools to the impressive outdoor netball courts at St Ivo Academy for an after school tournament. 25 matches were played over a 2 hour period to decide who would prevail as the St Ives HSSP Bee Netball Representatives at the Bee Netball County Finals later this year.

The Results:

A Team Competition
1st – Thorndown A
2nd – Warboys
3rd – Houghton A

B Team Competition

2nd – Brampton B
3rd – Abbots Ripton B
