Juniors Finish on Top at North Harbour Netball Tournament

Westlake’s pathway netball teams competed at the annual North Harbour Netball Tournament on 25 May against the North Shores top schools and the four sides had a good day finishing on the podium.

The Premier team, who compete in the Auckland competition on Saturdays, met Harbour teams for the first time this season.  Coached by Marcia Hardcastle and assisted by Toa Tanimo, they beat Carmel 1 and Whangaparaoa 1 in pool play to meet Avondale in the final of the Premier Grade.  Westlake’s Premier 2 side coached by Michele Wallace and assisted by her daughter, Claudine, finished 2nd in Section 1, ahead of Rangitoto 1 and Kristin 1, met Whangaparaoa in the premier playoff for 3rd & 4th.  Avondale beat Westlake 1 to win the Premier grade.

Westlake’s Year 10 – 1 team swept past Rangitoto, Carmel and Kristin in their section of the Year 10 competition to meet Avondale in the cross-over final.  Their game ended in a draw, 17-17 and both sides sharing the top spot. In the Year 9 competition, the sunny blue-sky day assisted Westlake Year 9 – 1 in their unbeaten run.  Impressive at both ends of the court, the Year 9’s faced Carmel in the final, and won 17-10.
