Netball Schools Cup

Awesome news from Homebush on Thursday as our Year 10 netballers were victorious in the NSW Netball Schools Cup Sydney Metro Finals! The team showed fantastic resilience after a shaky start to storm back into contention. They navigated the semi-final to come up against the powerhouse of Westfields Sports High in the Grand Final. Despite trailing late in the 4th quarter, the Normo girls dug deep and came up with a couple of crucial plays to win by a single goal! Huge congrats to the whole team! They have now qualified for the Schools Cup State Final later this term – best of luck for that one, girls!
