Camden netballers impress at Junior State Titles: Photos

A group of Camden netballers have proven they can match it with the state's best.

The Camden and District Netball Association (CDNA) sent three teams to the Hart NSW Junior State Titles in Kellyville last weekend.

It was the first time that CDNA had three age groups compete in the championship division.

CDNA was represented in the under-12s, under-13s and under-14s age groups.

Camden also supplied five national B badge umpires for the three-day competition. They were Casey Walsh, Haley and Rachel Pope, Kara Nurm and Wendy Dredge.

CDNA's under-14s team enjoyed a strong tournament to finish third overall.

The team consisted of Isabella Barna, Olivia Davey, Abbey Finlay, Grace Henry, Eseta Malaesilia, Chloe McMartin, Imogen Nies, Eliana Sapone, Katarina Sincek and Ashley Vasquez.

Under-14s coach Alex Pinnington said it was a good effort by the girls.

"Not often do you get a group of girls who truly work as a team and simply enjoy playing for each other," Pinnington said.

"It was a tough weekend, with a lot of close games and two matches being lost only by one point."

CDNA's under-12s side finished 13th in the state.

The side consisted of Charlie Benad, Claire Bryant, Blessing Donevekham, Kaloaine Folaumoetui, Ellie hart, Ella McBride, Lauren Ruediger, Kaitlin Tattersall, Belle Watene and Lauren Wright.

Coach Kerrin Thomas said it was an "amazing" result by her team.

"All these girls put in a 100 per cent over the entire three days," Thomas said.

"Watch this space in 2020. These girls have great potential and their futures are exciting."

The Camden under-13s team finished 19th in the competition.

The team consisted of Zoe Barrett, Lara Bassutti, Charlie Cowlishaw, Mia Frost, Lucy Gveric, Molly Kubecka, Maddison Leahy, Georgia Neaves, Katie Peters and Liarna Piliae.

CDNA under-13s coach Deb Mills said her team had "brilliant moments of netball".

"These little ladies fought until the final whistle in the final game," she said.

"I am looking forward to 2020 to fight back harder and stronger."

CDNA representative coordinator Brad Davey said all three teams deserved praise for their efforts.

"Over three of tough netball, there were plenty of blood, sweat and tears," he said.

"The players gave their best and I couldn't be more proud of every one of them."
