Our team of Year 5, 6 and 7 girls showed great grit and determination in every game at the Mission Foods Primary School Netball Cup held last weekend in Redlands. There were 80 teams from all over Queensland playing in eight pools to find two finalists from each pool who progressed to finals’ rounds.
Our girls work superbly as a team and got off to a flying start with a 13 to 10 win over Chancellor State College. Opposition was tough however and the girls fought hard in every game but were unable to notch up another win. One of their best games was against the top of the table, Calvary Christian College team which was a close fought battle. Our girls led 5-2 at half time but Calvary made a comeback with our girls finally loosing 18 to 8. Many teams were taller and older than our girls but they learned much from this competition and the majority of them are eligible to play again next year.
Our thanks goes out to Claudine Daunt and Kerrie Fissenden who have coached the girls over the past three months and also to Lisa Grigor for her help with paperwork and organisation. We would also like to thank all the parents who spent their weekend at this carnival and their invaluable support for the whole team.
