Junior Inter County Championships - Girls U13 - 2nd Team
Back row L-R Jess Johnson, Daisy Hartson
Front row L-R Katie Terrell, Isobel Johnson
The Glos second under 13 girls team had a great day out at Swindon Oasis last weekend. Their first match was against the host county Wiltshire. Isobel and Jess went on at the same time which made viewing exciting as they both fought very well in very close matches. Isobel at number 3 came through to beat Ellie 3-1 and then Jess at number 1 had a fantastic match winning 3-2 with lots of running and hard hitting. Daisy played very solidly to beat Tahlia 3-0 which gave the Glos girls a fantastic 3-0 victory. Katie also had a great match at number 4 and narrowly lost 3-1 but played very well.
The second match was against Sussex. The Sussex girls were rather strong for us but all of our team played very well and put up a good fight. Unfortunately we lost this tie 3-0 and Sussex went though as top of the group and will compete in the trophy finals in January.
We, though, were very happy with second place and all the girls gained valuable experience. The highlight of the day, though, has to the Oasis swimming experience in the afternoon. All the girls from all the counties enjoyed a well deserved hour jumping the waves and zipping down the tubes. All in all a very successful day!!
