A most unlikely tale of finals netball

How has Nagambie's A-grade netball side managed to all but qualify for finals?

Hannah Smidt reaches a fine balance in the under-17 game.


It might have at times resembled a season from hell (or close to it) but perseverance has paid off for Nagambie’s A-grade netball side.

The Lakers have often struggled to put a side together this year, generally due to injury, and had plenty of hurdles but Saturday’s 52-29 win over Violet Town means Nagambie is all but guaranteed a place in the KDNL finals.

Avenel’s win over Murchison leaves the Lakers six points clear of the Grasshoppers with two games to play. With the final game being against winless Longwood, that should be enough for Nagambie.

The Lakers had a tough battle early against the Towners, but the visitors’ lack of fitness then began to tell, something not lost on Nagambie player-coach Caitlyn McPhee.
