Echuca defender Emilly Atkinson starred for Goulburn Valley Netball League during the 2014 Netball Victoria Association Championships on Sunday.
Atkinson and Benalla’s Grace Hide teamed up to help guide the reigning open title holders to third place on the pool B ladder, boasting four wins from six matches after the preliminary rounds.
Unfortunately for Atkinson and coach Belinda Lees, the GVNL’s campaign stopped short of a semi-final berth with the top-two teams — Ellinbank and Bellarine — progressing.
It was those two clubs who ended the GVNL’s hopes, with Ellinbank recording a comfortable (18-10) victory against the team while Bellarine escaped in a thriller (9-7).
Ellinbank was eventually defeated by Alberton for the overall title (12-6).
The open division also featured the Murray Netball League which squared off in pool A — finishing seventh on the ladder with just one win from seven matches.
In the 17 and under competition, the GVNL topped pool B after an impressive round-robin section, winning four of its five matches to progress through to the semi-finals.
In a hard-fought contest, the GVNL fell just short of reaching the grand final, defeated 6-9 by Geelong.
