Petroc top of SW League

Joseph Bulmer

PETROC Netball Academy 1st team has ended a successful season by winning the British Colleges Sport South West Netball Performance League.

During the season Petroc played 12 matches against six other South West colleges, winning 11.

Exeter College had won the league for the previous two years, but beat them twice in closely contested matches, by a four goal margin away and just two goals at home. Their only defeat was against Bridgwater.

This success, together with the team finishing seventh in the England Netball U19 National Finals and captain Rebecca Priest being selected as part of the British Colleges National Team, makes this the most successful squad in the Petroc Netball Academy history.

Team members were: Rebecca Priest (captain), Beth Nancekivell (vice captain), Lizzy Hanner, Amber Manley, Miriam Kimber, Laura Short, Rosie Norton, Levi O’Brien and Charlotte Moore.
