SISS Junior tournament

The annual Junior South Island netball tournament was held in Christchurch during the holidays. Our 9A and 10A netball teams competed at this and came away with some great results. The teams had some really good wins, and some very close games, as well as the odd tough game against much bigger schools. The players skills and teamwork improved tremendously and they represented the College well.

Thank you very much to their coaches, managers and parents who attend the tournament with them, they would not be able to compete in such a great event if you weren’t willing to give up your time for these teams. Thank you also to all the supporters who travelled to Christchurch and cheered the girls on.

9A: Mia Daly, Mya George, Riley Hamilton, Isla McManus, Isabella McNaught, Dinnay Phillips, Mollie Phillips, Tallulah Rooney, Heidi Uys, Rachel Waldron

Coach - Gillian Anderson, Deborah Crawford, Manager - Gabrielle Johnson, Debbie Waldron

10A: Amy Ellis, Soraya George, Briana Grace, Hazel Henry, Maya Hewson, Charlie Holden, Laynee McDonald, Amelia Rattray, Avana Richardt, Kiki Tauri.

Coach - Karen Gebbie, Sarah Harvey, Manager - Kelly O’Hara
