This week’s NSW PSSA Netball Championships has been considered a success by the organisers.

The MacKillop region won the event.

Carnival organiser Ruby Church said players came from all over NSW, and all the teams played well together.

“It has been 30 years since we last hosted this carnival and now we have 140 students, 30 managers plus parents attending,” she said.

“It’s been a busy couple of days but it’s great to show off Broken Hill.”

She said it was also good for the other teams to travel to Broken Hill.

“We travel every year to Sydney, so now the other teams understand what our girls have to do,” Ms Church said.

Barrier coach Jacki Allen said the girls won a game on Thursday.

“We won by a goal - it was very exciting for the girls,” she said.

“They were thrilled and very excited.

“It was easy to see that as time went on the girls got better. They got to know each other more and worked well together.”

She said by the last couple of games the girls started scoring more.

“They became really competitive throughout the day,” Ms Allen said.

“I am very proud of the girls, they did a really good job. I think thanks should go to Ruby for organising the carnival as well.”
