The Tatura Netball Club’s Under-13 age group has three teams.

One of these teams is coached by young-but-experienced coach Jess Crowe who has shaped her division three team into a tight-knit group of girls.

The players in this team are to be commended for their teamwork and on-court attitude toward each other, as well as the opposition.

The respect they show their coach has meant weekly training sessions are paying off and results are mostly favourable with the team sitting comfortably in third position on the ladder.

Jess said the players in this team were a versatile group, which had contributed to their on-court success.

Players in this team include Charlee-Rose, Quinton-Thompson (captain), Eowyn Bowles, Izzy Crowe, Gretl Finlayson, Milly Hildebrandt, Natalie Hughs, Marissa Lingard, Hannah Newman, Beanie Russell and Olivia Stevens.

With their continued improvement each week, the girls are looking to finish the home-and-away rounds competitively, and have a finals campaign firmly in their sights.
