Hills Sports High has proved to be the year seven and eight Netball NSW Schools Cup state champions.
It was a dominant display by Hills Sports, going undefeated including an 18-11 win over Brisbane Water Secondary College Umina Campus in the state final.
Year nine adviser and netball mentor Taryn Smith said the girls “shone on the court”.
“It’s a team effort for us. One of the biggest things on the day is that we were able to take our B-team with us, so they were able to come and support in the crowd,” Ms Smith said.
“Their attitude on and off the court was a stand out as they were able to support one another to get the win.”
Hills Sports High has a great record in the tournament, claiming a second state title after winning in 2014. Ms Smith said it meant a lot to the team and the netball program at the school.
“It’s a testament to the hard work and the hours that are put in on and off the court,” she said.
“There is no greater achievement than showing you’re number one in the state.
“For the girls to see that hard work, that determination, those extra games we ask them to play - the proof is there with what we were able to bring home.”
The 2016 Schools Cup saw 913 teams enter across three age groups – year five and six mixed teams, and separate divisions for year seven and eight boys and girls.
