It was a busy week for the Katanning Netball Association with regular games and teams heading away to play in a carnival.

The KNA sent four teams to Esperance at the weekend for the Great Southern Regional Association Championships.

They were represented in under-12s, under-14s, under-16s and open.

It wasn’t Katanning’s year for any titles but all four teams put in some mighty efforts.

The under-14s were the only ones to get some wins under their belt.

There were strong netballers from around the region and it was a great experience for everyone who played.

Davina Davies, who put together KNA’s teams at the carnival, did an outstanding job along with all the coaches, managers, scorers, timekeepers and umpires.

Everyone bared the cold weather with a mid-week round for all senior grades last Wednesday night.

A-grade had Allstars 1 take on Kojonup 1 but Kojonup just couldn’t keep it together, which allowed Allstars to win 58-32.

Te Taitonga 1 had a great start to their game against Olympians 1 but the latter fought back well to win 76-30.
