The students shooting high in annual netball competition

ON SUNDAY, February 17, eight students from Years 7-9 travelled to Downlands College, in Toowoomba, to represent the Stanthorpe State High School Highlanders in the annual Laura Geitz netball competition.

The girls played in a round robin series in the Division 2 competition against schools from Toowoomba and surrounds.

Their display of outstanding skill and determination saw them come in first after the initial rounds.

The girls then played in the crossover rounds and earned a spot in the grand final.

They played Our Lady of Southern Cross College, Dalby, in this match and defeated them 12-7 to become division 2 champions.

Miss Krosch and Mrs Petrie were extremely proud of the girls' achievements at the competition.

Thanks also to the umpires who worked all day keeping the games flowing, Lara Tomkins and Charlotte Widderick.

Overall the day was a huge success, all of the girls were good sports and our whole school should congratulate them on their efforts.
