The Sidney Sussex ladies netball team have had a phenomenal year. Starting the sporting year at the bottom of the second division in Lent Term, we finished with a promotion into the first division (a feat which I understand had not been achieved before in Sidney Sussex history!). I started playing netball for Sidney in Lent Term 2012, when we had just been promoted into the fourth division. Victory after victory have demonstrated that we deserve to be playing in the highest, most competitive division. At the end of the year, our team had scored 125 goals against 59, a statistic that cannot be rivalled by any other college team this year.
The end of year netball dinner rounded off the year nicely, and I handed over the captaincy to Georgie Tyas. A special mention must go to this player of the year, who played a significant role in our success. It also marked a sad goodbye to the third year players. Special mention must go to the previous two captains Charlotte Best and Aimee Hutchinson, and to Anna Barth. You will all be sorely missed. However, we are all very excited by the prospect of playing against some of the best teams in Cambridge next year.
