Fazakerly High School had double cause to celebrate today after taking home two winner’s trophies from the Netball City Championships for secondary schools held at Toxteth FireFit.
The event, held on International Women’s Day, saw a number of schools battle it out for the right to be crowned champions of Liverpool and the girls from Fazakerly emerged victorious in both the Year 7 and Year 8 competitions, with St Hilda’s triumphant in the Year 9 age group.
The schools competed against each other in ten minute matches with the team topping each group crowned overall winners.
Organiser Clare Povlotsky, from the Liverpool Schools Sports Partnerships, said: “I’m thrilled this competition has been held on International Women’s Day as these girls are the women of tomorrow and they have done themselves and their schools proud.
“I have been so impressed with just how good the play has been. The standard overall has been very high. Congratulations must go to all schools which took part.”
International Woman’s Day is a global event always held on 8th March which celebrates “the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women” and which aims to ensure gender parity by 2030.
