Wauchope Netball club is super-proud to have had seven players across the 12's 13's and 15 as part of the Hastings Valley Netball Associations Rep teams who completed in the SAMSUNG State Age Championships in Sydney from July 1-3.
These championships are one of the largest female sporting events in the Southern Hemisphere. The competition is so large now, that no single Association has the court, venue space and facilities to host all four divisions and age groups by itself.
Therefore, multiple Associations are used simultaneously to host the event. 306 teams, representing 80 Associations, travelled from all over New South Wales to participate in this year’s tournament.
The atmosphere was electric and the skills shown in the games were of an amazing standard. The future of netball was on show with future Swifts, Giants and Diamonds in the making.
Kelly Malofie from Wauchope Netball Club said he girls left everything on the court every game.
“When their legs started to hurt, they let their hearts do the work, and that pushed them to a new level,” she said.
“The HVNA teams may not have walked away with a trophy, but they did walk away with their heads held high.”
