Tatura’s under-15 division three side, Tatura 4 (above), was this year coached by Sandy Witham. Witham said the competition was very even and over the season the players in this division had improved their netball skills.
‘‘At the end of the home-and-away season they finished in second place behind Goulburn Valley Grammar School, who defeated them by seven in the first semi-final,’’ she said.
‘‘Tatura won the preliminary final against Wanganui and will meet GVGS in the grand final on Saturday.’’
Tatura 6 coach Jess Crowe said her charges (left) were full of talent and had done an excellent job of developing their netball skills to a standard worthy of playing in the grand final.
‘‘As a coach I set the goal in making sure my team made it to the grand final and they have left me feeling extremely proud,’’ she said.
‘‘I wish them all the best.’’
Tatura 7 coach Fiona Boyer said her side (right) played some of its best netball for the season at the weekend when it beat Wanganui and booked a spot in the grand final.
There it will face sister team Tatura 6.
‘‘Their win ensures that Tatura Netball Association will come away with at least one premiership for the 2017 Shepparton Netball Association season,’’ Boyer said.
