On Saturday, 9th March, the 1st VII and U16A netball teams travelled to Singapore for the annual South East Asia tournament hosted by Tanglin Trust School. After a very early start for the teams, the first round of the competition which was in pool rounds, began at 8am.
The U16 team, with a mix of Remove and Hundred girls started off the day with a strong and positive attitude. They played a total of seven matches and throughout the day, the girls kept their heads up and supported each other both during and after games. Even though the U16s had very tough matches, the girls were able to reflect and look for areas of improvement. Overall, all the girls played well and learned a lot over the course of the tournament.
The 1st team were in a particularly hard pool against the top teams from Singapore, such as Singapore Sports School and UWC Dover. This tough competition tested both our defence and attacking abilities under pressure. After the initial four games, we were then placed into the Plate pool games for another three matches. This saw a vast contrast to the previous round which saw us beating our opposition convincingly to get through to the semi-final and then to the final of the Plate. We played Garden International School in the final. The girls played some very good, skilful netball, the final score being 21-2 to MCM. The tournament was a success for all the girls, and they gained valuable competition experience by playing and watching a range of netballing abilities.
