OLD Collegians netballers hope they can celebrate six premierships when grand final day arrives next month.
The Warriors have all six teams in post-season action for the second consecutive year and enthusiasm is high at Davidson Oval.
Three of the sides — A reserve, B grade and 17 and under — earned the minor premiership and will start their finals campaigns next weekend.
The A grade side finished third and will take on Dennington in a qualifying final at Noorat Recreation Reserve today.
The 15 and under side is also in action today, taking on Kolora-Noorat on its home court.
The 13 and under side meets Kolora-Noorat in an elimination final at Merrivale Recreation Reserve tomorrow.
Old Collegians spokeswoman and A reserve netballer Tamara Bull said the club was rapt with the achievement.
“It’s pretty exciting to do it two years in a row,” she said. “It was really good last year because it hadn’t happened in a long time because the seniors had been in a redevelopment stage.
“To have the juniors and the seniors all very competitive it’s just fantastic.”
Bull said the effort this season was even more impressive given the 13 and under players were, for the most part, in their first year of netball.
She put the success down to “a mixture of everything, we’ve got good coaches and players and a lot of friendships”.
Bull said the under 17s were the most likely to deliver the club a flag.
“I’d like to say all the teams can do it but the 17s are undefeated. Hopefully that’s a good indication of how they’ll go,”she said.
The coaches who have spearheaded Old Collegians’ senior sides are: Lisa Arundell (A grade), Katie Burrows (A reserve) and Jenny Gleeson (B grade).
Steph Townsend (17 and under), Liz Alderson (15 and under) and Megan Culell (13 and under) guide the young prospects which the Warriors hope will be their future.
