Two Katanning Netball Association teams headed to Albany for the Albany Junior Netball Carnival on Sunday.

The 12-and-under team coached by Bridgette O’Neill notched two wins from their five games.

They fought hard all day, showed great spirit, and produced impressive teamwork.

The 13-and-under team coached by Tania Edwards also travelled south to compete at the carnival, winning two of their five games.

Team management lauded the players’ great commitment.

The young players have shown strong improvement after two major carnivals in a matter of weeks.

KNA development officer Davina Davies did an outstanding job in helping the young girls get to play in these events.

There is another major netball event in Albany coming up, and Katanning is hoping to send junior and senior teams.
