Fantastic first tournament for our team!

On Thursday 24th June our Junior Netball team was off to Hokitika to compete in the West Coast Secondary Schools Junior Netball tournament. This year the tournament had six teams from Buller HS, Westland HS, John Paul II and two teams from South Westland AS in the mix. 

It was an action packed fast day of netball with games being 6 minute quarters so teams had to get into their work early. Our team did not disappoint! Going 5-0 and looking very strong throughout every game with their ability and combinations it is exciting to see how this team will improve even more as they build up to SISS.
