Our students excelled during this event with four of our teams qualifying to progress to the next round. One of our year 6 teams blitzed the field progressing without losing a match. As did our year 9 Boys team. “The Black Oysters”, who came in as strong favourites after winning last years State Championships. Our year 9 girls “ The Black Pearls”, held their own losing only one match for the day to finish on top of the ladder. Our year 7 and 8 Boys team were short a few players but managed to impress the organisers so much with their skill and ability to move the ball around that they were given a wild card entry into the next round.
The Northern NSW Schools Cup was held over two days at the Mullumbimby netball courts on Tuesday for the Primary School and Wednesday for the High School. There were over 300 students from various schools in the region competing at this event.
Our students showed great tenacity competing against some very strong teams to hold their own in all divisions. For many students this event was an introduction to the sport of netball and for others it was an extension of the sport they play every Saturday afternoon. All the students enjoyed the day and I would like to thank their coaches and assistants, who made the day such a success. Ryan Hamilton, Subhi Awad, Belle McPhee, Lizzie Gavahan, the year 9 assistants that helped manage coach and umpire the primary students, Monica Brandolini,, Ella Whitaker, Jett Grimster, Phoebe Campbell, Bimini Plesser, and Taj Birrell.
