On Sunday 26 October 70 girls represented Ruyton in the 2014 Bendigo Bank Netball Challenge at the Springvale District Netball Association.
The tournament had a large number of participants and proved to be a very positive experience with good competition amidst a friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere. Ruyton entered two U11 teams, three U13 teams and two U15 teams.
The day provided the girls with the opportunity to improve their skills in seven games of high standard netball. Congratulations to the U11 Royals (Amber B, Zoe B, Koo C, Jordan C, Pippa D, Claire H, Ruby J and Issy N) and the U15 Rebels (Elise Al, Zoe A, Tori C, Nikita D, Genevieve L, Sammi M, Cara V and Olivia W) who made it to the Grand Final matches, but, unfortunately were both defeated in tight contests.
The U13 Ruyton and U15 Rabbits teams missed the Grand Final playoffs by very small margins. The U13 Rockets who participated in the highest division in their age group played some outstanding netball against tough opponents and the U11 Rubies displayed great sportsmanship and enthusiasm all day.
