A TALENT-PACKED Warrnambool and District netball side has announced itself as one of country Victoria’s finest, thumping the Maryborough Castlemaine District league in its return to interleague.

The Katie Burt-coached side powered to a rousing 19-goal triumph, delighting the league faithful at Reid Oval on Saturday.

Stand-out performances from defenders Chloe Arnott and Kristy Bolden – who was best-on-court – ensured Maryborough Castlemaine District couldn’t score beyond 30 goals.

Top-class goal shooting from Steph Townsend and Melissa Burt meant the scoreline finished 46-27.

Burt described the victory as “special” and praised her players for delivering their pre-game goals.

“Each individual just did what I asked. Whether I was asking Krystal to work it around the ring, or whether I said to Chloe (Arnott) that I didn’t want her to miss a rebound, they did it,” she said.

“The greatest challenge for me was to keep myself off the court and just to coaching, but I did that.

“I just wanted to show them how much faith I had in them.”
