On Tuesday 21 May, 30 girls from Year 8 through to Year 12 travelled to Brisbane to play in the Catholic Cup Netball Carnival. The girls had to play between 7 to 9 games against Catholic schools from Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. All teams had wins throughout the day, with the Intermediate team winning all their games and taking home the Catholic Cup Intermediate Pool B trophy. Coach Kym Heritage spoke highly of their skills and commitment. Well done to these girls.
The Open B team, coached by Emma Ballester was very competitive, and although, they didn't manage to win a game in their pool – there were only narrow losses. Throughout the day, the girls from year 8 to Year 11 showed great improvement and teamwork.
The Senior Open team coached by Nicky Browne and Ellie Rushworth started with a strong win. This was followed by 3 draws, 3 wins and 1 loss. The draws hurt us as they kept us in third place. In the final playoff for 5th and 6th, the girls beat Downlands College. It was great preparation for the QISSN Carnival in Bundaberg.
The girls showed great commitment and character on the day and many are looking forward to continuing their netball journey next year. We wish the QISSN team all the success in Bundaberg in the first week of the holidays.
