Dungog and District Netball Association members were well represented at the recent State Age Championships.

Lily Turner and Grace Miller were part of the 14 years rep team and Jessica Rumbel was in the 13 years team.

The local women represented the Port Stephens Netball Association (the competition in which Dungog teams play during the winter season) during the July 1-3 event held at Campbelltown.

The 13 years team played 21 games over three days with 14 wins and seven losses.

Their final placing was eighth from 22 teams.

The 14 years team played 20 games over three days with 12 wins and seven losses and one draw to place seventh from 21 teams.

Emma umpired 19 games of netball over the three day event.

“We are very proud of the end result for our players to be in top 10 teams for their division,” said Dungog Netball President Sam Rumbel.
