Netball Interview

Netball Club Captain, Eloise Johnson, tells Pugwash News about her club’s season.

“As a club, we felt we had a very successful year. Our fourth team was promoted and all other teams maintained their league position. We were also especially pleased that we managed to defeat Southampton at Varsity. I don’t think we have ever won overall against Southampton during a Varsity match, so we felt that this especially was a great achievement.”

“Unfortunately, we lost our 09/10 Club of the Year status during the 10/11 academic year (to Cheerleading). However, we were awarded second place and were really pleased that our efforts were still recognised by the Athletic Union. Not only were we runners up for this award, we also managed to win a few trophies for the 10/11 year. We were awarded Fundraiser of the Year and our coach, Judy Yoxall, was awarded Coach of the Year.”
