Netball Team Fifth-best In The Country!

Higham Lane's Year 11 netball squad returned from this year's National Schools' Finals as fifth-best team in England!

The girls travelled to the event, held in Ellesmere Port, knowing they would be facing the finest netballers in the country.

Following fantastic performances in their eight group games, the team narrowly missed out on a lucrative semi-final place, but they were not down-hearted.

They knew finishing fifth was an amazing achievement, and equals the best-ever performance by an HLS Under-16 National netball squad.

Full story and more photographs can be found in the next edition of HLS Express, due out at Easter!
