Bunbury Catholic College students competed against other schools in the South West High Schools Netball Cup on Monday 18 June.
Our students in each year group performed well at the Hay Park courts.
Year 7 Girls
A group of talented Year 7 girls from both campuses came together to represent BCC in the Lower Championship Division.
This group of girls did amazingly well against often taller, stronger and older opponents as well as contending with heavy rain and strong freezing wind.
Each player performed awesome and the sportsmanship shown towards each other and to the other teams was outstanding.
Year 8 Girls
A mixed bag of results meant that the Year 8s narrowly missed out on attending the Perth competition finals by one point. The girls had two early wins in the morning while the weather was good before a tough loss to the bigger bodies of Manjimup.
In the last game against BSHS, a half time chat about tactics helped us come from two points down at half time to win by five points.
The Georgiana Molloy game was the narrowest of defeats by just one point.
The girls were up by four points at half time and missed out on beating the undefeated talents of GMAS because of the blustery conditions and some less than favourable passing with the flooded courts.
There were outstanding performances individually by Ashleigh Godwin and Mikayla Cusato.
Year 9 Girls
The Year 9 girls came out playing some awesome netball and had a strong win in their first game. In the next couple of games, the weather came in and the girls had to play in very wet and windy conditions which affected their play.
But for the last game when the girls were wet and cold, they got in a huddle and got each other pumped up ending the day with a win by two points.
All the girls played so well and worked well as a team – it was awesome to watch.
Year 10 Girls
The Year 10 girls had a successful carnival after battling it out in wet and wintry conditions to win most of their games.
They were the overall winners of their Pool and played off in a cross over final for first and second. Unfortunately they lost the grand final, which meant they finished second overall.
They will now travel to Perth to represent our College at the beginning of Term 3.
All girls played well over the course of the day, with a special mention to our two defenders Serena Nandapi and Giaan Evans who were a formidable combination in the defensive circle.
