Tuesday 25 August – Year 8/9 Girls Knockout Netball
The Year 9 Netball team travelled to St Mary’s College on Tuesday 25 August to compete in Round 2 of the Year 8/9 Girls State-wide Knockout Netball competition. As a group we knew it was going to be a challenge and unfortunately we were defeated by a highly skilled and well-polished St Mary’s team. Having a slow start in the first quarter was costly and made it hard to fight back. The last quarter saw even score lines, yet the damage had already been done. Special mention to St Michael’s defence particularly Isabella McGorman and Madeline Warren in GK against a very tall and accurate shooter. Lily-Mae Balkwill’s work rate was exceptional providing a lot of movement in attack as well as leadership. The girls are to be commended on their attitude and work ethic to keep fighting until the final siren. The loss gives the Year 9A Netball Team fire and drive to be in the top play-off at the end of the co-curricular winter season.
