Week­end high

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By NI­COLE BAX­TER

While ev­ery­one else had a hol­i­day, the Mun­gavin net­ball courts hosted the an­nual Majorie Jen­den Tour­na­ment over Queen’s Birth­day Week­end.

The tour­na­ment has been held since 1980, the same year Mrs Jen­den was ap­pointed vicepres­i­dent of In­ter­na­tional Net­ball. The con­test con­sisted of 20 net­ball teams, some of which had trav­elled from as far as Nel­son.

Twelve of these teams played in the U-15 grade and eight in the U-17 grade. Welling­ton Black man­aged to win both grades. Lo­cal Sharnii Lin­tern played for Welling­ton Black’s U-17 team, and was also named ‘‘shooter of the match’’.

The Kapi-Mana team made the play­off for third and fourth, but lost in the dy­ing sec­onds to Welling­ton Red.

Tak­ing aim: Kapi-Mana goal-shoot Ezralee Kumeroa sizes up a shot against Welling­ton at the Majorie Jen­den Tour­na­ment.
