On Tuesday 17th May Osmaston Primary took their Netball team, who had won the Rural Derbyshire completion, to Derby Velodrome to compete at County level against schools from other districts in Derbyshire.
Osmaston were placed in one of two pools which saw them face some extremely tough competitors. Their first game saw a close fought match against Loscoe which ended in a 2-2 draw. The next game saw Osmaston battle through a very close tie against Harpur Hill which finished with them just missing out on any points losing 4-3. Osmaston then managed to regain themselves for the next match against Brockwell winning 5-3. After their first win they were straight back on court playing against Oakwood, one of the strongest teams in the competition, who showed their ability on the court throughout the match winning 9-1.
Osmaston finished 4th in their pool which meant they had one final game to play to determine 7th and 8th place. This game was against 4th place in the other pool. This saw Osmaston face Church Broughton. Osmaston finished on a high with a confident 11-1 win resulting in Osmaston finishing 7th overall. Osmaston tried fantastically all the way through the event where they faced some very difficult fixtures so a huge well done to the team.
