U9 Netball Tournament at Pipers - Tuesday 10 March
On Tuesday, we took 3 netball teams over to compete in a tournament at Pipers Corner school. For some of the girls, this was their first netball match which was extremely exciting. All teams played exceptionally well, we had two teams place 3rd and one team placed fourth. We were extremely proud of the netball that was played, and we look forward to seeing them progress further next year. Special mention to Kianna Best for being awarded MVP!
U11 National Netball Competition - Wednesday 11 March
The day had finally come - It was time for Nationals! We were so extremely proud of the girls for even qualifying, as that in itself is a huge achievement. The Nationals were held at Rugby School this year which was absolutely amazing. Their facilities are outstanding, and the girls really enjoyed using them! We had some incredibly hard matches - the level of netball was extremely high but the girls did themselves proud. After a mixed bag of results in the morning, the girls ended up 4th in their pool, securing their place in the shield competition in the afternoon. During the lunch break, our shooters attended a 'shooting workshop' held by some of the Rugby School Netball 1st team. This was an amazing experience and the girls came away feeling confident for the afternoon matches. After more tough matches in the afternoon, we were placed third in the shield, meaning that we were in the medals! Our final position was 12th out of 26 schools, which is a huge achievement. We are extremely proud of these girls, they didn't give up all day even when the games were tough. All of the girls have worked so hard and achieved so much, we came home with big smiles on our faces. A huge well done to all the girls who took part, you should be extremely proud of yourselves.
