    Netball News

    At the end of last term, two SICG netball teams participated in the Finals Day of Competition in the Victorian School Netball Championships. This competition was held at the State Netball Hockey Centre in Parkville which is home to the Melbourne Vixens. 

    The Year 7 & 8 girls and the Year 9 & 10 girls qualified for this day as they won all their matches during the preliminary round in August. 

    The teams played six and seven games respectively and they mainly played against metropolitan teams. The matches were hotly contested and were played at a fast pace.

    The Year 7 & 8 girls played six matches, winning two and losing four. The girls came up against some quality Melbourne schools so I’m sure it was a great experience for them. 

    The Year 9 & 10 girls performed very well and ended up coming 5th in the State. They played seven matches, winning five and losing two. The girls narrowly missed out on playing in the semi final. 

    Both teams should be commended on their willingness to win, their desire to never give up and their eagerness to be a part of the school teams.

    This competition brings the netball season to a close. I would like to thank all the players, umpires and coaches who have participated in the netball program at Saint Ignatius this year.
