NET­BALL

WHIT­SUN­DAYS gun young­sters have gained valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence play­ing against North Queens­land’s best at the week­end.

The un­der-13 and 15 teams trav­elled to Rock­hamp­ton on Fri­day to con­test the Sun­shine State Car­ni­val.

The two-day com­pe­ti­tion proved ex­tremely chal­leng­ing, with the lo­cal girls fac­ing tough rep­re­sen­ta­tive teams from across the state.

The un­der-13s faced off against ri­vals Bowen in the first round of the car­ni­val, fin­ish­ing with an ex­cit­ing draw.

Prov­ing they weren’t a team to be pushed over, the un­der-13s won three of their games over the week­end, plac­ing a cred­i­ble eighth from 11 teams.

Although they didn’t net the re­sults, the un­der-15s main­tained their com­pet­i­tive­ness through­out the week­end.

How­ever they were un­able to pro­duce a win, but un­ques­tion­ably im­proved over the course of the car­ni­val.

The club would like to thank all par­ents, team man­agers and coaches in­volved in the week­end.

UN­DER-13S: (From back) Bianca Sturma, Aquarius Smith (coach), Jazmin Teys, Zali Hin­schen, Sarah David­son, Cait­lyn New­bury, Madis­son Jepsen, In­dia Smith, Brad Teys (coach), (front) Rain Smith, Tayla Rus­sell, Rachel Gottschalk and Danae Scoth­ern.

UN­DER-15S: (From back) Marteaka Sturma, El­iz­a­beth Jones, Steph McGoldrick, Issy Bur­nup, Ge­or­gia Sum­mer­field- Fal­lon, Erica Filby, Claire Ron­ald­son, Ali Ed­mond­stone (coaches), (front) Chanadda Klumkra­tok, Re­nee Davey-Grigg, Jayde Wood­ley, Ge­or­gia Furhmann and Cas­sidy Webb.
