With only one round left in the regular season of the Katanning Netball Association before three weeks of finals, games are getting extremely intense.

Even with some big wins, the defeated teams gave it everything in their pursuit of victory.

Juniors were on point in the second last week of the normal season and every age group and level was full of knowledge and strong performances.

The Net & Set programs will have their final session this Saturday.
