On Sunday 20th March, the 13/U development squad and the 15/U team 2 played the first tournament of the year at Hoppers Crossing. After a tough job for the parents struggling to figure out the best way to get to Hoppers Crossing with all the road closures, the girls all managed to make it safely. And although it was a long day, they were lucky to have some great weather and play some competitive netball.

The girls played 5 rounds winning one game in a strong and competitive section and in surprisingly hot conditions. It was a great experience for the players, some of which had not played in a tournament before. Well done to the team who gave it their all. Thank you to the parents for your support and I think we all enjoyed the day along with new venue and its facilities.
Under 15 - Team 2 - Coaches Report
They started off the day with a loss to Macedon Ranges by 2, as the girls were still half asleep. The day was very long and included 1 hour breaks between the games and when they had a bye, it was a 2hrs break! The girls played very well and lost one more game to Aberfeldie Thunder by 1 in the last round. Overall they won 3 games to finish on top of the ladder. In the semi-finals, they came up against Aberfeldie again. The girls played some amazing netball and with Tash’s amazing intercept in the last 20 seconds the girls forced the game into extra time. They then went on to play double extra-time but lost. It was an amazing game and all the girls should be very impressed with the efforts.
