NAIDOC WEEK NETBALL
NATIONAL Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) hosted a series of netball games at the St George netball courts over the weekend as part of the NAIDOC carnival.
A minimum of 60% of each team was required to be filled by players of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent, to celebrate and promote healthy living and sport in the indigenous community.
Two Cunnamulla teams, the Divas and the Hotshots, travelled to St George for the weekend, playing in a series of round robin styled matches against the Dragons, Saint Bawaas and the Anyrates.
The Dragons fended off the competition to win the tournament, beating runners up Saint Bawaas by 21 points to 12 in the final game.
Hannah Dodd was presented with the best senior player award and Kula Dahstrom was named the best junior player of the tournament.
Player of the carnival was awarded to Shonay Lomas, with best and fairest going to Dillon Weribone.
