Seven O'Sullivans took to the netball courts for Seymour on Saturday in various grades - Sandra, Ellie, Alice, Lyndel, Grace, Rosie and Meg.

The Lions began the 2014 GVNL season on a winning note, sneaking home 44-43 over Benalla at Kings Park in warm conditions on Saturday.
A win looked anything but likely by half-time, with an error-riddled Lions trailing 21-26 and a confident Saints seemingly on track.
But captain and acting coach Kath Knott had a simple plan for Seymour.
‘‘We talked about six goals being only three turnovers and we were confident going into the second half that all we had to do was get three turnovers,’’ she said.
‘‘It didn’t matter how long it took, that’s what we had to do.’’
