Trinity Bay State High School will compete in the State Finals of the Vicki Wilson Cup (VWC) after winning the Marlin Coast Netball region play-offs in Cairns last Thursday.
Fifteen teams from fourteen secondary schools in the region competed in the play-offs to secure a spot in the State Finals Series of the VWC. Skills and abilities were put to the test with teams having to play in extremely windy conditions throughout the day.
Trinity Bay dominated the Division 1 games, winning with ease. Results in Division 2 were a lot closer with Good Counsel College (Innisfail) and Trinity Anglican School (Cairns) tied on points at the end of the rounds. Both teams suffered one defeat so the decision to go into finals came down to a goal average. Good Counsel College scraped in with the smallest of margins, facing off against Trinity Bay in the final. However, they never stood a chance as Trinity Bay took control complete control of the game from the very beginning to win 27-6.
After sailing through the preliminary rounds undefeated, Trinity Bay SHS was the undisputed winner. They now go on to represent the Peninsula Region in the Finals Series which will be held at the State Netball Centre in Brisbane on 12 and 13 October.
