SCHOOL SPORT VICTORIA: SANDHURST DIVISION
On Tuesday 25 June our Year 7 and 8, A and B teams, competed in the Sandhurst Netball Competition at the Golden City Netball Courts. If was a full day and all teams played exceptionally well. Below is a brief analysis from each team.
The Year 7A team played some great netball and loved the experience to play in such a big and dynamic competition against all the other Association Schools. At the start of the day the girls went out hard. They played well together even though they had not played together before. As the day went on the girls improved so much and by the end they were playing amazingly well. They had a tough draw and battled hard all day against some very good opposition. They won 6 of their 8 games to finish 3rd on the day. Well done to all players on a terrific achievement.

The 8A netball team was lucky enough to go undefeated in the netball tournament. The girls got better and better as the day went on and settled in well and played as a team. They represented the College well and displayed excellent discipline. We are very grateful to the parents who came along and scored for us on the day. Congratulations girls and good luck at the Loddon Mallee Regional Finals day on 25 July.
