Ba won the TIV Sangam Convention netball tournament at the Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial School (SSKMC) hard courts in Nadi on Saturday.

The women in black beat Varoka (Ba) 8-6 in a nail-biting final.

Debutant Nadrala from Nadroga was impressive in pool play with team captain Catherine Arteeka Mani defenders Suman Singh, Karishma Dass and Shalini Pillay.

The side is coached by Judy Kumar. Nadrala beat Nalovo 5-3 and Banaras 5-4 but lost to Varoko 6-2 and Sigatoka 7-5 in the pool games.

“It was first year for Nadrala but as a coach I am happy and satisfied with the tournament. In three years time, Nadrala will be a team to watch. Nadrala Sangam is gearing for 2017 Convention in Labasa,” Kumar said.

 

Navosa brace for Youth Cup

The Ivamere Soko-captained Navosa Under- 20 team aim to defy all odds during the inaugural Punjas/Digicel Youth Netball Cup at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka on Saturday.

Navosa Netball executive Judy Kumar said the association will be fielding a team in a tournament organized by Netball Fiji.

“We have a pretty good team with preparation on par,” Kumar said.

“We know there will be tough competition out there but we are prepared to our district proud.”

Notable players include Litia Vatureba (defender), Litia Kunadua and Anei Labakara. The team will be coached by evergreen Alipate Tui and managed Silina Liku.

“The association is very happy that the games are held at Lawaqa Park and it is near for us since we have been travelling to other towns/cities in previous years,” Kumar added.

“We would like to thank the sponsors and Netball Fiji for organising a tournament to gauge U20 players for the selection.”

Kumar added this will be a boost as Nadroga Netball Association as they gear up to host the Inter-District Championship (IDC) at Lawaqa Park in August.
