2010 - Champions Again !!!

Finals Results for Tuross Netball Club

Tuross Troopers in the Senior Level ‘A’ competition won the Grand Final defeating Narooma 45 to 16. They were undefeated throughout the whole season. Coach: Luise Clements, Manager: Mark Carradus. Sponsored by Marshall’s Bus & Coach Service.

Captain Stephanie Watson said after the game:

"Our whole team played really well. Everyone lifted to the occasion and consolidated the season's efforts.. Shooter Renae Marshall injured her elbow in a fall during the second quarter of the Grand Final. She came off the court for the rest of the quarter but was back shooting for the rest of the game with a bandaged arm, and subsequently went on to score 20 goals, being ably assisted by Gemima and Melissa. Defenders Cass and Steph kept the Narooma team to a low score, with the centre court Lisa. Lenna, Ruby and Tegan working like a well oiled machine in both defence and feeding the attack."

The core of the team have been together for many years and it was a deserving result in a well contested game.


Intermediate Division 1 Tuross Tornadoes

"Playing netball was more than just teamwork and passing the ball and shooting goals, it was about shared friendship, laughter, supporting each other,discussing pertinent issues at training sessions that were challenging and important to the girls not necessarily anything to do with netball. All in all we had a great season. Success is measured by how much fun the girls had and we had loads!!! I'm very proud of all the girls and the effort they put in. They did me very proud."

- Vesna Stojanovska Coach

10's Tuross Tim Tams

Lost in the semi final 11-9 against St Peters Fantails. This game was a 9 all draw at the end of the game and went into extra time with the Fantails scoring 2 goals for victory. Coaches: Luise Clements; Kate Hines and Janet Muir.

“What a season for the Tim Tams! Our girls managed a disrupted season with change of coaches amazingly. They combined beautifully in the Final with all players showing their strengths. Lead in attack by Emily H, Inneka and Laura they were assisted with a solid middle by Kara, Emily S, Kodie and Sophie, with Soraya, Eliza and Molly doing an outstanding job in defence. The girls took the game into extra time and we have never seen a team come from the court smiling and excited even though they went down by 2 goals. We are so proud of our girls and hope that they will all back up next year."- Comment by Kate Hines and Janet Muir - Coaches


Tuross Netta Team (under 10 years old) - Tuross Tadpoles

"From the 10 players who ranged from the ages 7-9 only 2 had played netta before this year. The two who had played before, Courtney and Georgie, boosted the team with there better understanding of the game. The entire team where extremely enthusiastic although it was a struggle to get Ella on the court the first few weeks. She overcame the fear and by the end of the season didn’t want to leave the role as our main goal shooter. All the girls showed great improvement from the start of the season as Kassidy was a standout with her defending skills. It was a pleasure to pass on my netball knowledge to a young team of girls who all have potential to become another Tuross success."- Coach Renae Marshall
The Club President Mark Carradus is retiring after 5 years of service as President/vice president, in an entirely voluntary role, that was both essential to the both the club and the wider Eurobodalla netball community. Congratulations and thank you Mark.
