Team aims for states

CLARA Maw, Emma Bell and Aimee Ridge throw 150 balls at home each day as they prepare to shoot for the Warwick 13 years team in the forthcoming state age netball championships on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend at Maroochydore.

“We each throw 150 shots at goal a day and net about 120,” Clara said.

“Doing so much shooting at home gives us confidence.

“We want to win our division at the state titles.”

Aimee is the only new player in a team this season which finished with a 11/12 years victory in 2009 Darling Downs Inter-district.

On Sunday, the team (Warwick 7) won all its game at Barnes Park in inter-district netball.

Their wins were against Warwick 8 27-2, Laidley 3 14-8, Dalby 12-11, Goondiwindi 4 13-8 and Goondiwindi 3 22-14.

In round one of the inter-district, Warwick won both its game so has seven wins from seven so far.

Shenee Coleman is confident going into the state championships.

“We have been training hard,” she said.

Belinda Fenton is coach and Carmel Cowley manager.
