On a wet Saturday in November the Year 7 netball tournament got underway, 7 teams in the A team tournament and 4 in the B team competition. The competition emphasised fair play and skills of footwork, replayed ball and marking distances.
Our year 7 netball players have a fantastic attitude, they attend all the training sessions and are really developing into strong netballers. We have looked forward to this tournament and the girls did us really proud again this year.
The Devizes A team won 3, lost 3 and drew one finishing 3rd overall. All the players developed their playing styles during the tournament, picking up their markers to make passing challenging. There was some fantastic shooting and strong defending. The Devizes B team finished 4th, playing everyone twice; all the players worked well and played a number of positions.
We had many volunteers, the netball, Condover trip girls selling refreshments to all the parents and students and Year 10 girls running the table of results and refereeing the matches. We wouldn't be able to run this tournament without the amazing support of all these volunteers.
