In C division Cardinals Vixens defeated Olympians 3, 28-13, while Kojonup 3 downed Dumbleyung 2 52-38.

About 12 people are needed to get a game up and running, from KNA committee staff who are spending endless amount of time putting fixtures together, umpires, coaches, managers, scorers and timers.

These positions need to be filled to get a game running smoothly.

With 10 junior teams, a Net and Set program along with 16 senior teams, there are a lot of volunteers taking their own personal time for the netball players to enjoy the game.
