Congratulations to Jayden McHenry (co-captain), Josh Collins (co-captain), Matt Gunn, Nick Hogan, Brad Mayes, Aaron Collins, Liam Nankervis, Lee Hogan, Elliot Hackett, Jack Bennett and Tom Hicks on winning the Senior Boys Netball State Championship final recently.
Coached by Mr Damian Stephenson, the team started training in Term 2. They had several training sessions before school and during lunch times in the lead up to the qualifying round at the beginning of Term 3. The team of 11 went through the qualifying round undefeated winning all 10 games.
The team then continued to train, with most sessions outside of school time. One training session even occurred on a Sunday afternoon in which two members of the Australian Men’s Netball Team (one past, one current) came and did a session with the boys followed by a practice match with some very skilled netballers.
On the Finals day the team started off well playing 7 games and losing only one match by 1 goal to finish second. They successfully won the Semi-final by 1 goal and then won the Final by 3 goals (against the team they had lost to in the preliminary rounds).
The Senior Boys team successfully defended the title from 2012. This is the fifth consecutive time the Boys Netball team has made the State Championship Final and won 3 out of those 5.
