Netball at Sports Camp

My netball game at sports camp: At 9:55 on Tuesday morning, I was about to start my first game of netball for sports camp. I was really nervous about my game because I was worried that we would not win or shoot any goals… because I was goal shoot. Beep! The loud horn, went ready to start the game. So we raced onto the courts. 5,4,3,2,1 the loud whistle went. We were playing against Combined. It was their turn with the ball from the center. All I could hear was “Over here!” “Over here!” and, “Just shoot it,” “Don’t be nervous.” 1,2,3 shoot!

“Yay,” I said. 1 to Tauriko and 1 to Combined. We were down to the last five minutes and it was Combined’s ball from the center. We thought we were about to lose. Miraculously, Akenese did an amazing defence with the ball and passed it down until it got to me. 1,2,3 shoot. I got the ball in the goal as soon as the horn went. In the end the score was 6 to Tauriko and 5 to Combined. Someday I want to play for the Silver Ferns and make New Zealand proud.

    You managed to stay those nerves, focus, work hard and do the job for your team. A great score and you contributed wonderfully to the end result. Well done.
