Somerset's Netball Academy team and Open 1st team competed in the regional rounds of the Vicki Wilson Netball Tournament with 40 other schools throughout the Region recently. The competition was held at our local Hinterland District Association, at Firth Park.
Both teams were impressive with their display of skill and determination as they headed into the long day of eight and nine games each.
In what was an amazing day of netball, all players represented the College with attitudes to be proud of and a competitive spirit that was inspiring.
For the first time ever our Academy team (Years 8 to 9) qualified for the state finals; a huge achievement that the girls have worked so hard for. The team finished undefeated in the rounds and lost by one point in what was a brilliant Grand Final against a very experienced King's Christian College side.
The Open team competed with so much heart in every game with our defensive end plagued with injury. Bayley d'Hotman de Villiers couldn’t play due to a knee injury, Georgia Wilson was just out of a moonboot for an ankle injury, and Ellie Muir was having her first game back after an eight month break for a shoulder reconstruction. The girls looked like they had never been injured as they put their bodies on the line and competed strongly.
The team were also undefeated in round play but went on to lose the Grand Final to Southport by one point.
Vicki Wilson Cup and Shield State Finals will be held on 5 and 6 August at Nissan Arena, Brisbane.
A massive congratulations to our Netball students who proudly represented the College in the highest manner.
