The U13 and U15 Representative Teams went to Aberfeldie on SUNDAY 14 JUNE to play in Central West Association Championships. This tournament is an opportunity for our netballers to be TID by Netball Victoria talent scouts. It is a key part of Netball Victoria's talent pathway and the MRNA are excited to be a part of these championships again. A finals appearance by the U15 Reserve team was the highlight of the day !
15 & UNDER
15 Open team had a great tournament AGAIN !!
Made finals, and ended up facing off against Wyndham in the grand final. What a game, ending in a draw at full time. Extra time was needed to determine the winners and our girls were victorious 5 - 0. Superb effort especially as one of our players had to leave early for work.
15 Reserve team won 4 out of our 5 matches during the rounds so off to finals again. They were winners over Sunbury Sonics in the semi final and had to face Wyndham in the grand final. You wouldn't believe it ... a draw again at the end of normal time. Unfortunately they lost the game in extra time 4 to 1. It was a terrific effort by all the girls.
The MRNA and the coaches are extraordinary proud of these two teams.
