THE Warwick 12 years netball team had two causes to celebrate after the Darling Downs Inter-district competition finals - a victory and the chance to mingle with hero Laura Geitz.

Australian Diamonds player Geitz was at the inter-district finals in Toowoomba a fortnight ago during a break between Queensland Firebirds and Australian Diamonds commitments.

The Allora goal keeper was at the finals and had a stall at Nell E Robinson Park with her clothing line.

Warwick Netball Association president Leah Murphy said the girls were all keen to buy something from Laura's lines.

"The association was happy with the results from a busy representative season.

"Both Warwick 12 years teams won their divisions at inter-district under the coaching of Shari Hirning and Polly Hope," Murphy said.

"The Warwick 14 years team won under the coaching of Helena Fraser."

Warwick was runner-up in the 16 years age group under coach Amelia Sutton.

Murphy said all nine Warwick teams performed well.

"The last representative carnival of the season will be held this weekend at Southport, with Belinda Fenton and Stephanie O'Brien coaching the 15 years carnival team on the Gold Coast this weekend."

The association is gearing up for next season with trials for representative teams at WIRAC on September 11.

All interested players should have received an email and are asked to nominate by email or in person to secretary Linda Bunch by August 24.

Prospective managers and coaches will also be required to nominate.

After this weekend, all of the focus will be on the club scene with the first Saturday of junior finals on August 25 at Barnes Park.

Preliminary finals will be played on September 1 and grand finals on September 8.

Senior netball grand finals will be on September 17.
