Radford Gold Netball Team
Congratulations to the Radford Gold team on an outstanding season this year.
Throughout the season, the Radford team excelled each week, improving their skills and achieving their goals each game.
From the very first training it was evident that the team was going to be a great one to coach; the girls got along well and they were committed to the sport. Throughout the season, they played 14 round games; luckily for us the timeslot we were allocated was bearable—not too early and not too late.
The Gold team results for the season were: 9 wins & 5 losses
On Saturday 7 September, the Gold team played off in the minor semi-final (3 v 4) against INNC Snow Leopards. Unfortunately, Saturday was not Gold’s day, and Radford went down to INNC Snow Leopards by two points in overtime. In the Fourth quarter, down by 10 points, Radford Gold played extremely well and the team was able to pull back five centre passes to end regular playing time in a draw, meaning that Radford would need to play for another 10 minutes (five minutes each way); any turnover could result in either team coming away with the win.
Final result for the game: INNC Snow Leopards 41 def. Radford Gold 38
The Gold team would like to thank their parents, caregivers, staff and students who came out throughout the season to watch, support and cheer them on, especially on Saturday for the semi-final. A big thank you to Nadia Kingham for managing the team this season and Bernadette Leger for coaching. To the year 12 students in Gold: Jade Kingston, Ella Hundy, Elise Northcote & Maddy Dyne leaving Radford College at the end of 2019, we wish you all the very best and hope that you continue to be involved with Netball.
We look forward to the 2020 season!!
