16/06/2014
On Thursday 5th and Friday 6th June, the Beenleigh Opals (Under 15’s Team) and Beenleigh Diamonds (Open Ladies Team) competed in the Secondary Schools Indoor Netball Tournament run by the Indoor Netball Federation of Queensland. Over the 2 day tournament both teams played a total of 10 games which consisted of 8 minute quarters with a 1 minute break between each. The Open’s team won 4 out of the 10 games, whilst the Under 15’s girls won 6 out of the 10 games and progressed in to the finals. In the finals, the Under 15’s Opals team were up against Assisi Catholic College’s mixed 15’s team. The game was an intense match which saw many turnovers of the ball and was high powered from the get go. At the final buzzer, the score was 27-14 with the Under 15’s coming in second.
At the end of the tournament, 5 students were selected as part of an ‘All Stars’ Team. Aliyah Hira, Wana Hira and Crystal Perkins were selected from the Under 15’s division, whilst Chloe Squires and Lycharne Parkinson were selected from the Open Ladies Division. In addition to the ‘All Stars’ Team, Crystal Perkins was also selected by the umpires as ‘Player of the Series’ for the Under 15’s division.
All students should be proud of their achievements and for the teamwork, sportsmanship and integrity that they showed both on and off the court!
