Saturday

Saturday morning dawned and the family was up bright and early.
It was Grand Final Day! Yes, it has finally arrived - the end of the netball season!!
Miss Gabbie was nervous and I was stressed, but a large cup of strong coffee on the way to the courts would have to be enough to tide me over...

At 9am the Bratz - Super Brat, Speedy Brat, Biggest Brat, Baby Brat, Space Brat, Peppy Brat and Sleepy Brat - take the court. Mini Brat (team manager) and Boss Brat (me) nervously paced the sidelines. This was it!

After not losing a game all season, I truly thought at one stage that they would lose today. It was a very close game and after 60 hard-fought minutes, the Bratz claimed victory by only 5 goals.

These seven girls are the nicest young ladies I could ever hope to meet, and it has been a privelege to coach and support them this year. Sadly, three of "my" girls are retiring from junior netball (too old now!), but I am hoping to keep the rest of the team together and add some more players for next season, and do it all over again!

So, to the Bratz...Thank you for a wonderful season. Congratulations on your victory - you well and truly earned it!
