Double league success for Debden Park High School netballers
Year 9 and under-16 netballers at Debden Park High School are celebrating after winning the District netball league for the second successive time.
The U16 team, who secured their second year sponsorship with local building contractors Gillard early in the season, won the district league undefeated before losing to St Mark's, Harlow, in the play-offs.
Meanwhile the Year 9 team, captained by Ellie Webb, not only retained the district league title but went on to win the play-offs for the second time, this time overcoming Burnt Mill, Harlow.
Head of PE Jen Perry said: "The standard of netball the Debden students have played over the last few years has been excellent. I am always proud of the students' achievements, and their dedication and commitment to their training sessions.
"I am pleased they were able to collect silver and gold medals. We are looking forward to the next season already."
