Netball Silver Medalists!

Sue Haber's team of 7 girls took Akiva all the way to the end at the Barnet Netball Finals against some very tough competition.  The tournament saw the top 8 teams in the Borough battle it out and the Akiva team played with passion, finesse and skill.  They were so close to an overall win but unfortunately eventually lost 1-0. It was an exhilarating, and exhausting, afternoon! The girls came home with SILVER medals, finishing second out of about 50 teams in the overall competition. This is an amazing achievement and the girls should be very proud of themselves. 

The Akiva team were lucky to have such strong parental (and grand-parental) support at the game, which makes it more special for the girls and for Sue Haber. Thanks too to Lisa Wander for providing more encouragement from the sidelines!
