Gladstone netballers take on QLD
GLADSTONE netballers have high expectations of feeling good this weekend, as they take to the courts against other Queensland teams.
The Feelgood Carnival, formerly known as the Country Carnival, is being held in Bundaberg.
Under-13s, 14s, and 15s teams, as well as open teams representing Gladstone are taking part in the tournament, which brings together teams from across regional Queensland to compete.
One of the open teams comprises under-19 netballers from Gladstone and players are looking forward to the challenge and high standard of representative netball.
Coach Larissa Anderson, in charge of the under-19 brigade, believes the team will perform well at the carnival.
“I think they’ll go awesome,” Anderson said.
The open teams will play seven games over the course of the two-day carnival.
“The girls will be sore come Monday,” Anderson said.
Last year, the Gladstone side finished third in its division at the country carnival.
Teams have been training for the past six weeks, since a trial day was put on to select players for the sides.
