Franklin Zone Netball- held last week in Pukekohe.

Year 3-4 Netball Players

Last Wednesday, a group of Year 3 and 4 girls travelled to Pukekohe to take part in the Franklin Year 3 - 4 Netball tournament. The two Waipipi teams each played eight games. All of our girls showed a positive attitude and participated fully in their games. We were blessed with wonderful weather, which helped to contribute to a great day out. Thanks to Vicki Linnell for her coaching, and to the parents who provided transport and encouragement throughout the day. Chris Milne

Year 7-8 Mixed Netball Team

The seniors didn’t win any games, but did draw against Awhitu. They showed real grit against some tough competition but the best part was to see the sportsmanship and them all including one another. The rain held out most of the day until our final games. Vicki Linnell

Thanks Vicki for all the work you put into making our Netball successful.
