Netball tournament hosted
Whangamata Area School recently hosted an inter school netball tournament on their freshly installed Tiger Turf outdoor netball courts.
Teams from Pahoia School, Waihi, Katikati and Whangamata Area School took part in this annual tournament.
Most of the day was played under a clear sky and in warm conditions. In the last hour a sudden downpour hit the area, yet this didn’t take away the tournament fun factor.
The soft underfoot court surfaces allowed free flowing netball along with minimal injuries. This well organised tournament included two referees for each game and safety padding around the netball poles.
Results: Year 8 winners Katikati B, runners-up Waihi 8b, Year 7 winners Katikati 7 A, runners-up Katikati 7 B, Year 6 winners Katikati Magic, runners-up Pahoia Streamers. Player of the day winners Year 8 Aylssa Waihi B, Year 7 Kyarna Gilbert Whangamata Dynamites and Year 6 Kaelis Campbell Whangamata Magic. Whangamata Club Whangamata Titoki Men
