Gundagai netballers close off rep season in Yass

Gundagai’s under 11s representative netballers Sophie Graham, Tessa Crowe, Charlotte McDonnell and Emmy Gaskin closed off their representative netball season on Sunday.

Playing for the Tumut Netball Association under 11s representative development team, the four girls joined their Tumut teammates and the under 12s representative team in Yass, playing against Yass Blue, Yass White and Temora. 

While not winning the competition, the Karen Cobden-coached team played well. 

Tessa Crowe was a ball of energy in defence, making multiple intercepts, while Sophie Graham played well at centre and wing attack, with the pocket rocket one of her side’s best. 

Emmy Gaskin was good in attack, sinking some nice goals and Charlotte McDonnell was versatile, playing all over the court, while making an impact in close challenges. 

This competition brings to an end to the girl’s representative season, with their focus now shifting to club netball.
