BMS Teams Named County Netball Champions 09 March 2022

Bedford Modern School’s U11, U12, U13 and U14 netball teams have been named County Champions following their participation in tournaments held this academic year. All four teams remained unbeaten in their paths to victory, competing against some formidable opponents along the way.

The U14 team played their games at Bedford Academy during the Autumn Term and their win qualified them to compete in the Regional Schools Tournament in January. They placed third in the group stages, which left them just one rung away from progressing to the playoff stage.

In the Spring Term, our U11, U12 and U13 teams had their chance to compete in tournaments held at Bedford Girls’ School and at Bedford Academy. Notable performances came from Holly Freeman who scored two winning goals in the U11 final, and the entire U12 team who stayed calm under intense pressure in their final game against BGS which decided the tournament.

Head of Netball at BMS, Miss Brightman, commented: “I’m delighted that we are now County Netball Champions at four age groups. We are now in a position where we are competing for the top spot in every tournament we play in across all age groups, which is fantastic for the future of netball at BMS.

“I’ve been so pleased to see these students stepping up and striving to win. There is a real buzz surrounding netball at the School and the four County Champion titles are inspiring and motivating everyone.

“Well done to all of the girls that competed, we are all very proud of you.”
