On Tuesday NAS welcomed Victory Heights School for two rugby fixtures, both games were very tightly contested with some excellent rugby on display.
The Year 4 and 5 touch team worked hard to secure a 2 -1 win. Josh Harbour again proved his ability to read the game and opened up the scoring with a well-worked team try. Victory Heights levelled the game early in the second half before the game went end to end with each set of 6 touches. Neither team was able to break through for the winning try until Kai Woodhouse displayed his speed and ability to evade the defense and scored a well-deserved try.
The Year 3 tag team fought hard in their match with the scores being locked at 5-5 at half time. The second half was no different and the two teams could not be separated. The full time score was 9-9. The match was taken to extra time, the first team to score would win. NAS fought hard but had to hand the ball over after their 6 tags. Victory Heights exposed a gap in the defence to score out wide leading to a 10-9 victory for the away team.
Well done to all children who represented NAS in tag or touch rugby this year, we have had some fantastic results and great improvements have been made. We look forward to the rugby season next year, where our players will be more experienced and will once again do NAS proud.
On Tuesday 24th March the U14 netball team travelled to the School of Research Science (SRS) to play their last league netball game of the 2014/2015 season.
The pace of the game was extremely high throughout and both teams worked hard to consistently challenge for the ball. The end of first quarter score was 1-0 to SRS but NAS scored in the second quarter to make the score 1-1. The third quarter saw more goal scoring from both teams to bring the totals to 3-2 to SRS. The final quarter was close fought with neither team allowing the other to score. Final score 3-2 to SRS and player of the match was Clemmie Silverwood, our Year 7 who was playing in her debut for the U14 team.
Although the team did not win they came away from this game positive and proud of how much they have achieved and progressed during their first season playing together. Well done girls!
