The Karratha Netball Association travelled to Newman on the weekend to make a bid for the North West Championships held in Newman on June 17-19.
The squad sent six teams over for a chance at the title and have been training hard in recent months to maximise their chances, including sessions with former international coach Sue Gaudion. See next week’s edition of the Pilbara News for details.
