Last weekend, the Primary Schools Cup Netball Carnival was held in Maroochydore with 160 teams from all over Queensland competing. The courts at Fishermans Road were a sea of players, umpires, supporters, tents, food stalls and a big screen, which broadcast the Suncorp Super Netball final with the Sunshine Coast Lightning vs Sydney Swifts on Sunday afternoon.

The two day carnival provided an opportunity for players to experience competitive netball in a Championship Division and a Development Division. Pacific entered a team in each of these divisions.

  • PLC Navy – Championship Division: Amber Hetherington, Evie Sillar, Freya Mulholland, Grace Cawley, Holly King, Kahlia Taylor, Kirra Burdett-Cluer, Mia Locke and Zoe Woods.
  • PLC Teal – Development Division: Ana-Belle Mogg, Amelia Holmes, Cayley Slevin, Kayla Sanderson, Leila Osborne, Lucinda Whight, Maya Dean-Meredith, Mia Beilken, Mia Wilkie and Orly Sillar.

Both teams played very well and all players displayed great sportsmanship both on and off the court.

On Saturday, the grading rounds were held with both PLC Navy and PLC Teal qualifying for Division 3. On Sunday, PLC Navy played four games, winning three and drawing one. As a result, they qualified for the finals and finished runners up to Eaton Hills out of the 20 teams in their division. PLC Teal played 12 games over the weekend and finished fifth in their division.

Coaches, Mrs Michelle Dufty and Mrs Amanda Empson, were very proud of all students and their development and growth in the short time they have been training and playing together.

A very big thank you to Gabby Gorham and Tayla Gorham for umpiring and to all the parents for their support during the girls’ netball journey. We look forward to improving our results in 2020!
