The Warren Central School Open Netball team played brilliant netball to win the open division Western Region Central School's Netball Carnival last week Dubbo.
"Our girls worked like a finely oiled machine; they were just so smooth," said an excited coach Gaye Rush.
After three convincing wins the girls went up against Barradine Central School. In what was a nail-biting final the two teams went goal for goal for the majority of the game. In the end though, sheer determination pulled the girls through, with a four goal lead.
"It was a great display of fast, slick netball and quite a number of schools' players and coaches stayed on to watch," said Gaye.
The Central Schools State Final title is now in the girls' sight and they will be counting down till August 22nd when winners from the southern, northern and western regions of the state will meet in Dubbo.
Also representing Warren Central at the carnival was the Under 16's team and although less experienced these girls came a credible third out of nine teams. The girls played some very polished netball, winning their first three games. This qualified them for the semi-finals where they came up against the older and more experienced Dunedoo Central team. It was a predictably tough came, pushing the Warren girls to the limit however the Dunedoo side came out the winners.
Coach Gaye Rush complimented all the girls who participated in the two day carnival. "They showed exceptional team work and team spirit and conducted themselves in a manner in which I was proud."
