Samsung Primary Schools Netball Cup

Endless Energy from St Kieran's Netball Team

If you wanted a fine example of team work and tenacity you need look no further than the St Kieran's Primary School Netball team who play 11 games of netball at the Samsung Primary Schools Cup in Bundaberg last weekend.

The competition was huge with over 100 teams from all over Queensland playing in 20 round robin pools.

After day one, teams were ranked into six divisions for the second day of games to ensure each team could play opposition more similar in ability.

St Kieran's improved with each game played and in the last game of day two, they were all on fire.

The ball was passed quickly down court and goals were scored resulting in a very exciting win for the team who beat Woongarra State School seven goals to three.

Principal Mr Ben Gray said “They kept up their determination in every game even when legs were aching and bodies were asking for a rest in the hot Bundaberg conditions".

" I really couldn't ask for any more from the team, they gave it their all".   

“This was the first time St Kieran's competed at this event and a great opportunity for the students who displayed outstanding sportsmanship and teamwork" Mr Gray said.

St Kieran's finished the carnival with 4 wins and finished fourth in their Division 4 pool.

The Samsung Primary Schools Cup is a Netball Queensland initiative open to all primary schools in Queensland for students in grades four to six.

The two-day event provides an opportunity for girls and boys to come together and experience competitive netball in a fun and safe environment, with an overall state champion crowned at the end of the tournament.​
