Un­der 14 girls hit the courts

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport - By KLARISSA THOM­SON

THE girls lined up for their first game to­gether and for some, their first tour­na­ment ever.

Af­ter months of train­ing, drills and prac­tised plays, all went out the win­dow when con­fronted by their first team who dom­i­nated all game.

Fol­low­ing this shock start they all set­tled and lis­tened closely to coach Julie An­der­son for her ad­vice and en­cour­age­ment.

As the day went on the team came to­gether and im­proved out­stand­ingly.

They found their groove and con­fi­dence in the last two games with their de­ter­mined de­fence, drib­bling, drives and layups pay­ing off.

All of the girls walked off the court at the end of the week­end with smiles on their faces and their heads held high.

Strong drives and re­bounds by Zoe Reed, Harper An­der­son and Ava Ma­honey, end­less in­ter­cepts and de­fence by Zel­lie Ni­cholls and Jade Rau and great shoot­ing by Ta­sia Ciarma and An­nie Thom­son.

Well done girls.
