Louth netballers fell agonisingly short of becoming county champions as they claimed a creditable third spot.
Cordeaux Academy’s Year 11 team of Chloe Day, Olivia Redmond, Natalia Kaye, Lucy Wright, Louisa Marshall, Rosie Cosgrove, Kia McKenna, Charlotte Warsap and Charlotte Redmond travelled to the county finals of the schools netball tournament in Lincoln after winning the district round in October.
They played four schools in their league, winning three games and losing one to progress through to the semi-finals as group runners-up.
Cordeaux lost to a very polished Bourne Grammar School team in the last four, and went on to play a tense and exciting third/fourth place play-off against Caistor Grammar School.
The girls fought hard to edge a very close game and end a good day in third place.
