Hula Girls Shake Up the Competition
Glenmore Park Netball Club’s 12C team, the Hula Girls, were undefeated during the latest Penrith District Netball Association regular season, winning 14 games out of 14 played.
In the regular season, they scored 318 goals for with only 92 against.
In the finals’ series, they won a close-fought major semi-final 18-15 against Cambridge Park, the 2nd placed team, but were matched up against Emmaus in the Grand Final.
As everyone knows in sport anything is possible and anyone can win on the day. Unfortunately, the Glenmore Park team encountered a fast-opening Emmaus side that never let them recover, going down 13-26 in the decider.
The Hula Girls’ team coach, Erin Vicary said “Teams were divided at the start of the year to ‘build’ sides. It was so good to see the friendships girls made so quickly, which I think is one of the reasons the girls did so well this year. I always enjoyed training days and seeing the girls each week. I look forward to next season and what their skills and team bond can achieve for them”.
Erin added, “The girls were a pleasure to coach and although they didn’t win the Grand Final, they never gave up and made me very proud as were the families and supporters. Congratulations to Emmaus who were the better team on the day”.
