Netball Gala Day
Combined Districts Secondary Sports Association (CDSSA)
Netball Gala Day
The CDSSA Netball Gala Day was held last Friday at Minto Sports Stadium. Emanuel School entered teams into all three of the divisions on what was an excellent day of sport.
The junior girls’ team had been training for this competition for some time and were well prepared to play against some very competitive teams. The team comprised of Jade Berson, Nina Brown, Elia Gil-Munoz, Alexis Joffe, Amber Langman, Romi Lapidge, Hannah Lax, Zoe Miller and Ashley Nabarro. Despite the squad being quite young, the girls played exceptionally well and finished in third place.
The senior girls’ team was selected after several trials last term. The senior coach, Lauren Erhlich, had prepared the team well and the players demonstrated excellent skill and determination at the event. The team members were Rebecca Friderich, Pnina Hagege, Jade Laishevsky, Tasha Lapidge, Jade Reuveny, Mia Shapiro, Sarah Sharwood, Rachel Turtledove and Katie Vasin. The squad was missing some key players who were completing their Duke of Edinburgh expedition, however, they still finished in a respectable third place.
In what is a relatively new initiative, the gala day had an open mixed division. Emanuel was very consistent across the divisions, once again finishing the tournament in third place. Well done to Gemma Beinart, Reece Berelowitz, Amy Collins, Joel Epshteyn, Jemima Firestone-Greville, Jake Kurlansky, Georgia Linetsky, Erin Radomsky and Laurence Siltchenko.
Congratulations to all players on representing the School at CDSSA event.
