State Age Championships for Grafton girls

THIS weekend our representative teams for 12s, 13s, 14s and 15s ventured to Penrith and Windsor to take part in the annual State Age Championships.

We wish all of our girls the best of luck and praise the patience and dedication of coaches and managers throughout this year's string of carnivals that have all lead up to this exciting event.

As always, the efforts of the umpires who have volunteered to represent our association are highly appreciated and respected. We extend thanks to Karlie Chevalley, Donna Jackson, Caitlin Roberts, Josie Tamasi and Rhee Searle. We couldn't do it without you!

To keep updated with the girls' progress at State Age this weekend, please visit the Grafton Netball Association Facebook page.

Take the time to relax, rejuvenate and then be ready to get back into the netball atmosphere when we recommence next school term on July 18.

Parents and family members are of course welcome to attend this celebration as well as the players, with money to be paid on the night of the dinner. It would be highly appreciated if managers could supply the estimated numbers to Sharyn by July 8.
