Senior A Netball Team to compete in Otago Southland Secondary Schools Tournament

Mrs L Piebenga —

The Senior A Netball team are preparing for their tournament coming up next week.

The Otago/Southland tournament is being held in Invercargill on the 30th, 31st August and 1st of September. Day 1 we have  a challenging three games against James Hargest, St Peter's and Wakatipu High School. The second day we will come across home-town favourites Southland Girls in the morning, followed by Dunstan High School in the afternoon. Our final pool-play match is on Tuesday morning, against St Kevin's. From then we find out if we have made it into the Top 4. If we have, the game will commence at 2:30pm; if we have not, we drop into the bottom 3 game at 1:00pm.

On Tuesday, as part of our final preparations, the team were lucky enough to play the Markhams College A team who are currently unbeaten in Premier A grade.  The team was also bolstered by Dani Gray who has recently completed her season playing in the ANZ competition for the Northern Mystics. This was a great preparation opportunity for us, following a break in the local competition.  We are grateful for the opportunity to play such an elite side!

We look forward to reporting our progress next week.
