On Tuesday, the Year 7 netball squad participated in their first friendly against Kelvin. Despite the final score reflecting a challenging game, the match provided valuable learning opportunities for the team as they continue to gel and develop their skills.
After a nervous start, the girls got into the flow of the game. They demonstrated remarkable perseverance, working cohesively and refusing to give up, showcasing collective effort and determination within this newly formed squad. This initial experience acts as a stepping stone, providing valuable foundation for improvement and motivation to refine their skills and embrace future competitions with newfound confidence.
In addition to the spirited effort and resilience displayed, Sirius used the friendly as an opportunity to experiment with new formations.
The shooting duo, Brogan and Grace, worked hard to move the ball towards the goal and made huge progress in the shooting circle throughout the game. In the mid-court Helen, Lilly, Kirstin, Eden and Honey effectively worked the ball down the court. Defenders Poppy, Danielle, Lily and Lily executed excellent interceptions to turn over the ball and maintain possession. The energy and the dynamics of the whole team was outstanding.
A special mention to Brogan, who earned a well-deserved Player of the Match, showcasing versatility in both attack and defence.
All 11 students who represented the academy were fantastic.
