2023 SUNA Junior Carnival

August 05, 2023
U11 Div 3 Grand Finalists

The Southern United Netball Association (SUNA) Junior Carnival for U13 & U11’s was held on the 30 July. As a club we had two 11 and under teams nominate and with our depleted 13 and under squads only had one team nominate. Congratulations to these teams for their efforts over the day in what was pretty wet and unpleasant conditions. Congratulations to the parents who looked like they had a good fun day as well, braiding, coloring hair and dressing up. Also a big thank you to our club umpires (Adele Alderson & Ella Koukourou) as well who without these teams cannot play.

Under 13 Div 5

These young ladies had a great day finishing with a two win three loss record. You can see the development in these players and they were full of smiles and energy all day. The coach also got some positive feedback from our ring in umpire for the day.

Under 11 Div 3

Thanks to Sam and Tanya for bring out this team of girls. In a seven team division things were always going to be a little strange and as we had a bye we only played four minor round matches, three wins and a loss. At the conclusion of the minor round we in second spot on the same points and the exact same percentage (for and against) as the team in third. There was a long discussion about who was in the finals but as per the ladder with Falcons in second spot we played of in the final. A strong effort by the team but alas they were no match for Oakdale and lost 7 to 3. Congratulations on making the final and having a fun.

Under 11 Div 5

Just falling short of finals finishing in third sport (three wins and a loss) this young ladies had a great day. It goes to show that when they are graded into the right division, they play some great netball and will become a force in the coming years.

Lastly, a big shout out to everyone who help in our toasted sandwich fundraising efforts raising about $750.
