Rugby netballers succeed at West Midlands.
Three local girls achieved higher than they expected in the West Midlands Netball League.
Michelle Marcella, Sammie Leeson & Hayley Leeson made up part of the Coventry based team Copsewood Diamonds who won the West Midlands Regional 2 League undefeated winning all 18 games.
The girls travelled to Walsall every week to play some of the best teams in the West Midlands.
Captain Hayley Leeson said “It was a tough season, I was lucky to have a great team behind me this year who fought for each other, I couldn’t have asked anymore from them. The further into the season we got without loosing a game, the more determined we were to keep our undefeated record, and the more pre game nerves we got. We played 18 games in total, one of which we took the court with only 6 players as 2 girls were stuck on the motorway. We have a great club that have backed us all the way, we couldn’t have done it without the great coaching and support.”
