Kids’ ‘heart, ef­fort’ praised

North West Telegraph - - Sport - Robert Dougherty

Stu­dents from Hed­land have matched their skills against Kim­ber­ley kids in foot­ball and net­ball for the an­nual Broome Cup.

Hed­land Se­nior High School stu­dents from Years 7 to 9 in the Kick­ing Goals and Shoot­ing Goals pro­grams made the six-hour bus trip to Broome this month.

Cho­sen for their pas­sion for net­ball and foot­ball, at­ten­dance, good be­hav­iour and high work ethic in class, 39 stu­dents made the trip to match wits with their Broome Se­nior High School and St Mary’s Col­lege coun­ter­parts.

Year 7 teacher Dy­lan Goodall said the trip was a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for all the stu­dents in­volved, de­spite los­ing against BSHS in the foot­ball.

“There was a lot of heart and ef­fort shown by all the kids in­volved, we’re all re­ally proud them and how they all stepped up,” he said.

“One of the high­lights of the day would have to be when our best play­ers com­bined forces with St Mary’s best play­ers to take on Broome Se­nior High School in the grand fi­nal . . . their sports­man­ship was sim­ply com­mend­able.”

Chloe Glas­son and Nini Pangestu were named by the com­pe­ti­tion um­pires as Hed­land best and fairest in the net­ball com­pe­ti­tion.

Verinia Bin Saad, Azanii Dee­gan and Tay­lah Ed­wards were com­mended for as­sist­ing in coach­ing and um­pir­ing as part of their Cer­tifi­cate II in Sports Recre­ation.

“While Broome Se­nior High School took out the top two spots, our two teams fin­ished in third and fifth po­si­tion which is re­ally com­mend­able con­sid­er­ing their op­po­si­tion,” teacher Jes­sica Van Den Eynde said.

“All the girls were bril­liant, I couldn’t fault them from their skills and at­ti­tude on and off the court.”
