As a team we made the decision to enter the ‘A’ League schools tournament last night, the best netball teams in the city are at this tournament, including teams that play in national tournaments. As a school we have not entered this tournament for many years.
The team arrived a little nervous but we discussed conduct and the level we were about to be a part of and went in. We were in league of 5 teams with the top 2 progressing through. We had some amazing play and held King Edwards 2-2 in the first half. We scored against all teams (except Sheffield High 1’s!) and eventually got our first win. As the evening went on their confidence and the belief that we could stand our own ground against these teams grew. We ended up coming 3rd in our league and just missing out on going through to the semi-finals. The girls played some outstanding netball and several netball umpires commented on their attitude towards the games and their ability when playing.
If you see the girls today please congratulate them it was a real step forward for Y8 netball at Springs.
A big thank you to Mrs Jackson for taking us.
