OUTSTANDING performance from our Y9/10 side
Huge day of netball for our talented Y9/10 team with having three full games of netball in the day walking away with two wins and one tight loss! This excellent day one performance has seen our girls go through to the Top 16 grouping. Congratulations team and to Coach Cronin and Manager Lynch, plus a shout out to our team umpire Mackenzie Clark!
After this big day of netball our team was booked into go to the LIVE Taxtic netball game tonight – We hope you enjoyed yourselves!
Day two saw some exciting games on the cards for our team, second stage of pool play was a chilly start with -5 degrees! Our girls must not have liked the cold Canterbury weather and they went down to Rolleston. However, second game of the day saw a solid bounce back against St Peter’s taking an 11 point win.
The quarterfinal game against Geraldine HS was a thriller! Both teams were tied up at full time, being a QF there must be a winner so extra time was played (17 minutes of it!) until our girls went two ahead to take the win – woohoo!! For the final standings on the points table of stage two of pool play we took through a bonus point from the tight loss to Garin the day before and with one win and one loss the team finished on 5 points. This was equal with Garin however we had a better point difference of just 6 points! SEMIFINALS for Top 4 here we come! An even earlier game tomorrow will see the team take on Roncalli College, I am sure it will be chilly – if you are cheering on the team make sure you rug up warm.
Super early start for our girls against a talented Roncalli team who have been wining big throughout the tournament and it was the same tone against our girls, however a good performance from the team in the early morning chill.
Off to the 3rd/4th playoff sees the girls take on Rolleston College again who we played game one on day two, Rolleston got the jump on us in that game beating us by 10 goals. This time around our girls took the convincing win! Eight game of netball in three days finishing 3RD out of 32 teams in the Combined Y9/10 Grade! Excellent result for this impressive team, congratulations!!
Thank you to Coach Cronin, Manager Lynch, and Mackenzie Clark as umpire. Also special thanks to Coach Kayla Hibbs for prepping the girls well for the tournament, I am sure they did you proud! Also a special shout out to all the wonderful supporters who attended games, it was fantastic to have so much local support in Canterbury.
