On Tuesday all the year 7 and 8s went to play at the Senior Winter tournament. We had a choice of Netball, Rippa Rugby or Soccer, but we didn’t have enough people for one soccer team so they made another rippa team.
We sent off two netball teams and two rippa teams. We all went on the bus, and when we arrived the netball people went to the court and the rippa people went around to the rugby fields. I was playing netball, so I went to my team mates and we went to our court for the first game against Otaki college. We got absolutely thrashed on this first game, losing 22 nil. Yeah. Meh. We improved over the day though, getting a higher score every time until we eventually won the last game. Yay!
The other netball team won their first game, but by default because the other team was late. They lost all their other games. BUT they got into a play-off which my team found really annoying because we won the same amount of games as them, and we actually played the game that we won, but oh well.
The rippa teams did quite well. Both teams came fourth in their grade, which was really great!
The tournament was really fun, despite the fact a lot of people had sore legs afterwards (and I fell over in one of the games and had to go off because I hurt my arm – it went all weird and I couldn’t catch the ball properly for a while!) I can’t wait until next year’s tournament!
