Crowned Winners of the 2018 Toowoomba Netball Association – Under 13C Team pictured above
The end of the netball season resulted in a great triumph and victory for the Under 13C players.
A thrilling two-point victory over Saints last Saturday and crowned Under 13C champions of 2018 was a well-deserved win, which demonstrated determination. SCOTS supporters and fans were on edge from the start to the very end in an extremely contestant match with turnovers going both ways. Non-stop cheering of fans on opposite sides of the court encouraged and motivated the girls to achieve their best! And the girls did not disappoint, working together to transfer the ball into the goal circle and claiming the final place in the competition.
As the saying goes the harder the battle, the sweeter the victory.
Thank you, parents, supporters and fans, your support on the sideline certainly pushed the girls to do their very best.
When asked what the girls treasured most of last Saturday’s final match, they said “the cheers and support of the SCOTS fans on the side….. and of course the trophy!” – Totally agree!
Netball greetings, from the Coaching Staff.
Last week saw the Tuesday night hockey team play in the preliminary semi-final. Unfortunately the team went down 6 goals to 2. However, the team showed excellent team work against a team of very experienced senior players. This ended the season for the senior team, who have played 22 rounds over the last four months of competition, making it into the major semi-final. Excellent skills were shown by Willem Wiid, Rose McDonald, Patrick Swift and Andrew Wu.
Last week also saw the conclusion of the Primary Schools competition, played on Thursday afternoons. The JAM team (pictured below) went through the season undefeated and played West Warwick State School in the final. The JAM team ended up winning the final 3 goals to 2, to remain undefeated champions. Excellent skills were shown by Brianna Groves, Lachlan Groves and Liam Poole. Congratulations to all players and thank you to all parents who supported the College teams this season.

I encourage our young athletes who particularly gained 3rd, 4th and 5th placings this year, of which we had 25 performances, to reflect on your preparation this year and actively seek me out early next year to help you prepare for your assault on the 2019 championships.
I look forward to attending both the 10-12yrs and 13-19yrs State Championships as a member of the DD Team staff to assist our athletes at the State Championships. I remind them all that training is available on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for the remainder of the term and programs are available on request to assist you over the holidays.
