Season hots up as teams push for top of ladder
With four rounds left, the race is on to see who will top each of Bridgetown Netball Association’s grades.
Due to the COVID-19 shortened season, the team that tops the table will be declared as league winners for this season.
In the Junior A competition, the Jetz continued their undefeated season, beating the Galahs to maintain a four-point buffer over the second-placed Scallywags.
In Junior B, the Skylarks are clear league leaders and will mathematically seal their place at the top of the table with two wins from their remaining four games, or if the the second-placed Bluebirds lose a single game in their next four fixtures.
As well as the regular season, Bridgetown’s Junior Netballers represented their club away at the Netball WA South West Regional Championships.
It was a successful day for the association, with its 15 and Under Green team taking the premiership in their grade and the association receiving the competition’s sportsmanship award.
Club president Megan Burvill said she was proud of the association’s efforts, particularly in winning the sportsmanship award.
“We pride ourselves on conducting ourselves with sportsmanship in all of our areas and all of our age groups, so that was really pleasing,” she said.
“It was a very good win for our 15 and Unders as well, against some tough competition during the day.”
