Talent on show at Newman carnival
V Swans Shooting Goals students from Newman and Hedland senior high schools competed against each other in the annual Newman Netball Carnival last week.
More than 60 Year 7 to 10 girls competed, with Newman SHS providing three Year 7-8 teams and two Year 9-10 teams to play against Hedland's two Year 7-8 and the one Year 9-10 team.
V Swans East Pilbara regional manager Chelsea Randall said talent and skill was displayed by both high schools.
"A tough battle well fought out by both teams, but it was Hedland 2 that took out the Year 7-8 champion shield," she said.
"The Year 9-10 division saw Newman 2 and Hedland in a nail-biting first half with only two points the difference at half-time.
Both teams took to the court and it was Hedland that had the legs to run the game out into a five-point victory.
"Newman Year 11-12 Shooting Goals students assisted in umpiring and coaching all day, a brilliant effort which goes towards their Certificate II in Sport and Recreation, which they will receive towards the end of year."
Randall said many others assisted on the day and thanked teams, parents, teachers and spectators and also the V Swans' ongoing partnership and support from BHP Billiton.
