Prefects Netball Clash with John McGlashan College

Mrs G Beardmore —

Thursday last week saw the Columba Year 13 Prefects host a fabulously fun and feisty netball match against John McGlashan College in the Columba Marsh Sports Centre.

As per tradition, team Columba came out onto court in John McGlashan College First XV jerseys, while JMC were provided netball dresses to wear for the highly anticipated netball clash between the school prefects.

The lunchtime game allowed for the gymnasium to be lined with Columba students in support of their Year 13 leaders. The match got off to a shaky start with JMC putting an easy 5 or 6 goals on the Columba team, however, the girls pulled it together and clawed back the lead over the first quarter.

It was goal for goal across quarters two and three, however, JMC managed to hang on to their small lead. The crowd was buzzing, the music was blasting, and the competition was brilliant. When the final quarter arrived it looked like the game was going to come down to the wire.....and it did! A slight stumble in the final minute saw Columba fail to land the goal, and JMC sneak ahead to claim a well deserved victory over their Columba College peers. What a great spectacle, enjoyed by everyone in attendance.   

Thank you to the Columba Prefects and Year 13 students who helped to organise this fantastic match.
