Champion Netballers

Yes, again, more Netball success! Today, the Year 7/8 A team has WON the Primary Sports Canterbury Winter Tournament! That is an amazing achievement – especially after their success last Thursday in winning the weekly competition. Well done to coach Ginnie Clucas and her team that won the final 10-3 over Rolleston (10 minute games) after a full day of pool play and play-offs.

Three Champion Netball Teams!!!

In the last week, Hillview has been crowned Netball Champions three times!

Our Year 7/8 A Netball team won their Thursday afternoon A Grade final last week – the Year 5/6 A Team were second in the A Grade. Both of these teams compete at the Primary Sports Canterbury Winter Tournament tomorrow.

Our Year 10 Mixed team and our Year 9 team both won their Divison 3 Finals today at Hagley Park in the Finals Day of Secondary School Wednesday Sport. The Year 10 team has been unbeaten this year and defeated Cashmere 27-20 with some excellent goal shooting from Wairepo Te Hae and strong defence from Beth Manning and Sarah Carr. The Year 9 team defeated Avonside 29-10 with Michaela Ridden outstanding in the goal circle.

South Zone Tournament – Netballers shine

Today we had 16 teams take part in the South Zone Winter Sports Tournament at South Hagley Park. There was some very tough competition but our netballers showed they are top of our zone.

The Year 7/8 A Netball team won every game to win the A division and the Year 7/8 B team also won the B divison – excellent results! The Year 5/6 A team made their final and then ended up second – a super effort. Both the Year 5/6 and 7/8 A teams will compete at the Primary Sports Canterbury tournament on Thursday 29 August from 12noon. (Postponement 3 and 5 September).

The  Year 5/6 A Football team, previously unbeaten this season, lost a pool match but made the grand final before going down to Thorrington A to narrowly miss qualifying for the Centrals. The Year 7/8 Rugby team beat eventual winners, St. Martins, in their first game but a loss and a draw later meant they were tied for 2nd – a countback of number of tries scored saw them end up 3rd, with only the first two teams qualifying. The Year 5/6 Rugby team ended up 3rd= after losing 35 – 0 to St. Martins in pool play but then had an amazing turnaround to draw with the same team 14-14 in the 3rd/4th play-off!

Thanks to all parents who helped out or came along to support the teams. We wish our Netball teams all the best for 29 August.
