Little Desert (B Group) Year 7 – Netball

Thursday 8th June, 2017


 Ten Year 7 girls represented Murtoa College in the Little Desert Year 7 Netball Tournament in Horsham on Thursday. Coached by Jessie Delahunty and Cleo Baker, the team played two shortened games against two schools in the Little Desert Division. Cathie Weidemann was our umpire for the day and she gave our players valuable advice as they played to improve their understanding of playing within the rules. The improvement the team made across the day was great to see.

It was fantastic to see the girls work together as not all normally play netball, and those who were new to the game were embraced by the seasoned players. Despite the cold weather, the girls did a mighty job against both schools and showed determination and sportsmanship.

Game 1 Murtoa College v Dimboola Memorial College                    Lost 12:22

Game 2 Murtoa College v St Brigid’s College                                       Won 13:9

Special thanks to:

  • Cathie Weidemann for encouraging our team, and especially for UMPIRING for the whole day;
  • Jessie Delahunty and Cleo Baker for coaching the team and encouraging the girls over the duration of their games;
  • The parents and friends for coming out to support their students during the day.
