The final round in the Katanning Netball Association before a break for the school holidays was held last Saturday.

NetSet juniors started their break early but go and juniors got through one last round before their break and all games were incredibly close.

Some junior players will be continuing their training for the Great Southern Association Netball Championships in Esperance at the end of July.

Round 9 for seniors had teams coming in hard and strong, with everyone wanting a massive game before the split and the competition brought back to four grades for the finals.
