Netball: Not just a game

Article by Sweet Potato Fry

Holy Cross Netball season was full of exciting matches against various schools. One of our noteworthy matches was against Cape Town International. We competed to the best of our abilities, but it was to no avail as we lost 38-18. The competition was tough and we are proud of the team’s hard work.

Claremont High was next in line to experience the wrath of Holy Cross’s fiery netball squad. Once again, it was a tight game and the sound of the whistle pierced through the hopeful crowd’s ears multiple times. The team’s determination to make up for the devastating loss paid out as we won both senior and junior matches. The juniors won 8-3, with the seniors just ahead with 19-17.

Both games were very demanding on the team but we are very proud of all our netball girls. The biggest lesson learnt throughout this netball season is that perseverance pays off! Keep up the good work girls
