Our 1st Netball team wound up their 2017 season over the weekend, competing in the Queensland State Netball Finals at the Gold Coast Sports Precinct in Carrara. Twenty of the state’s top school teams were on display, with all teams contesting strongly for the Vicki Wilson Cup.

Somerset had a great start on Saturday with a big win against St Augustins 56 to 11. Then a close hard fought game to John Paul College resulting in a 24 to 27 loss. Two more wins on Saturday put the team in to the top eight.
