Grand Final day on 1st September saw six Arana Netball teams competing. As many of these teams had come together as new combinations only this year, it was a good effort for teams and coaches to perform as consistently through the season. Making the finals in fourth position, but dropping out losing their semi-final, was Arana 6, 13Yrs Div.6.
Arana’s teams playing in the Grand Finals were Arana 1, Div. 6, finishing Minor Premiers; Arana 3, Intermediate 6, Minor Premiers; Arana 4 and Arana 5, Cadet 8 and Cadet 9 respectively, both Minor Premiers; Arana 7, 12 Yrs, Div.7, Minor Premiers; and Arana 8. 11Yrs Div.3. This last team were playing their first year of competitive netball, and were re-graded by Downey Park during the course of the season from Division 6 to Division 3.
To commemorate the season just finished, Arana Netball’s Trophy Presentations are on Saturday 15th September. Players, families, and other supporters are invited to attend, with members are recognised for their efforts and achievements this year, and special awards are given for Players of the Year, Sportsmanship, and other similar extra achievements.
With the A.G.M. having been held in August, some changes have occurred to Committee personnel. Monthly meetings continue through the whole year, as the 2018 season is wrapped up and planning and preparation for the 2019 season begin. Meetings are held in the Arana Sports meeting room at the Hills District Community Hall on the third Monday each month. Meetings commence at 7.30pm, with the next meeting on Monday 17th September.
