Netballers fly the flag in Rockhampton
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.
