TEAMS TAKE CENTRE COURT
ON THE BALL: Mackenzie Ross, Poppie Collins, Rebecca Widgell and Anastasia O’Neil at the Southwest Netball Trials in Roma last week.
NETBALL: Netball teams from across the southwest gathered in Roma on Friday for the southwest netball selection trials.
The aim of the trial competition was to select two mixed southwest teams to compete in the state finals in Brisbane in May.
Six 13-15-year-old teams and seven 16-19-year-old teams played a series of round robin test games, while selectors watched on.
Players travelled from as far away as Cunnamulla, Charleville and St George for a shot at the regional team.
“We have got players from different levels from across the region, with some stronger than others,” convener Susan Price said.
“It’s pleasing to see the improvements across the board in all of the players. Charleville in particular has really improved.”
