Article excerpt

WITH the school holidays over, netball at both Tweed and Murwillumbah associations will return to the courts this weekend for the business end of the season, as both associations head to the finals.

CONGRATULATIONS to Tweed 13s, 14s, 15/16s and Opens who competed at the Country Championships over the weekend.

All teams performed well, with the combined 15/16s who competed in the 16s age group Division 2 coming home in third position, missing out on second place by one goal.

The team was made up of eight 15-year-olds and two 16-year-olds, and because of the combined age group were placed in the higher division. It was a huge challenge for the girls who at the end of day one hadn't lost a game.

Well done to the team and coach Tracy McKenzie for a top effort.

With the main rep season now over, Tweed will be holding trials for the 2010 season on the following dates:

August, 19 - 12s and 13s age from 4.30 to 6.30pm;

August, 26 - 14s through to 17s from 4.30 to 6.30pm (age = turning age as at 31/12/2010);

The Open trials will be held in January and the date will be advised shortly.

Nomination forms can be collected from the office on Saturdays or from the web ( (http://www. …
