Zones Netball and Rugby Tournament

Natasha Fraser —

In Week 2, 55 students competed in the Lincoln Zone Netball and Rugby Tournament. They all represented Halswell with great pride and fair play.

It was fantastic to see all the students getting involved and for some trying out a new sport. They played with determination and all showed fair play even when some things didn't go their way. 

Our netball teams had some tough competition especially in the A grade with our top teams in Year 5/6 and Year 7/8 missing out on 2nd place and a trip to Canterbury's on count back and only by a couple of goals. Our B teams played fantastically and improved so much throughout the tournament. Our rugby team went in with bold faces and did a great job of tackling lots of tall boys and girls to the ground. 

A huge thank you to Mrs Hurford, Mr Topham, Miss Bush and Mrs Delleca for coaching and helping these teams on the day.  Another huge thank you goes to Jamie Fletcher and Stu Lock-Green who coached and refereed our rugby team on the day.
