The 17&U and 15&U NGFNL netball representative teams recently competed in the annual Netball Victoria Association Championships at Moe.
The tournament started in very slippery conditions, which proved difficult for all teams. The 17&U team were very competitive displaying some great passages of play and their ability to win the ball back defensively was terrific. The 15&U also worked hard with some closely contested games and executed their set plays well. One of the highlights for the 15’s was a 10 all draw to eventual runners up West Gippsland League.
Both teams came away with wins and a draw. ‘We were so proud of all the players development during training and on the day’ said coaches Paxton Farley, Bec Fromberg and Steph Henley. “The teams came together very well and we were really impressed with how quickly they learnt new skills and their positive attitudes’. It has been a great opportunity for players in the league to have the opportunity to experience playing netball at this elite level.
Thank you to umpires Jess Johnson and Claire Harrison for representing the NGFNL.
