I went to both evenings of the Netball Tournament and really enjoyed supporting the team. The girls worked amazingly hard, both in marking, defending and blocking the ball, which prevented the other teams forward play. This was matched by their incredible forward play and attacking skills. Solid catches from long throws in the middle of the court ensured a hard fought for victory in every game. The girls definitely deserved the gold! The training and the support from Mrs Morgan kept the team focused and it showed that they knew exactly what to do (most of the time, lol).
I was very proud to support the Hollygirt team, they did the school proud.
