CHNA. Circular Head Netball Association hosted its Grade 6,7,8 Grand Final last Tuesday (June 27) between Roxy and Quiksilver.

Quiksilver came out strong with a passion to win. Their defensive pressure and accurate shooting right from the start set them up with a 10 goal lead heading into the final quarter. It was this quarter that Roxy fought back showing a never-give-up attitude right until the end bringing back the scoreline to a six goal win to the deserving Quiksilver.

“This season has seen the girls battle the elements and still produce some fantastic netball,” says CHNA president Rebecca Wilson.

“This being apparent with our Best and Fairest count only being one point between the first four girls.”

The season had a good number of players sign up for the junior netball roster with five teams in the competition – a really positive sign for the club, says Wilson.

Piper Grey took out the Best and Fairest with 15 votes followed by Leah Odgers who polled 14 votes.

“We finished off the season with a supper and awards night for the girls which was a very enjoyable evening and a great finish to a fantastic roster,” Wilson says.

“We look forward to another great season with the girls next year.”
