South West finals next up for North Devon and county U14 netball champs

West Buckland’s U14 netball players are celebrating again this week after being crowned county champions.

Following their recent success in the North Devon round of the National Schools Netball competition, the West Buckland girls dominated all of their matches held at the University of Exeter to emerge as county champions.

Another series of strong performances saw them overcome each of their opponents, scoring 69 goals in six games.

The final proved to be their toughest challenge, where they defeated Blundell’s 12-7 to book their place in the South West finals.

“We came up against some strong opposition and our girls had to play hard to win,” said U14 Coach Jan Witheridge. “I am delighted for them and we are now looking forward to the South West finals.”

The West Buckland team will take part in those finals in Bournemouth on January 25.
