Mod­dies take top spot in shield

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

NET­BALL: Our Whit­sun­day net­ballers hit the road north on Sun­day, con­test­ing the Bur­dekin Shield.

Par­ents, play­ers and coaches got off to a very early start to ar­rive in the Bur­dekin by 7am in time for first games to start.

It was a hard fought com­pe­ti­tion, with Townsville prov­ing the teams to beat as they ran home win­ners in six of the eight di­vi­sions.

Bowen and Bur­dekin were also strong as usual, but not strong enough to over­come the Whit­sun­day Mod­dies.

Tak­ing on the 8-10 years di­vi­sion, the Mod­dies claimed the win for the south.

Due to their di­vi­sion, there is no tro­phy, how­ever all team mem­bers will re­ceive a medal for their win­ning ef­forts.

The club also ex­tended a very spe­cial con­grat­u­la­tions to Kiarni Hin­ton who took out Most Val­ued Player in the un­der 12A di­vi­sion.

Adding to Kiarni’s achieve­ment, the young net­baller also claimed the MVP ti­tle in 2015 when she com­peted in the un­der 11 di­vi­sion.

In other re­sults from the day, the un­der 11 Dol­phins man­aged to claim them­selves fourth spot.

The un­der 12A-A1 saw Whit­sun­day on the podium, snatch­ing a very close third.

The un­der 12B Al­pha team earned them­selves fifth.

In the un­der 13B, the Fire­flies also climbed the podium, tak­ing out third place.

The un­der 14B saw GEO Metrix tie for fourth.

Fi­nally, the Un­der 15s had the War­riors in sixth and the Thun­der in sev­enth.
