Congratulations to Ranger’s girls (from left) Jess Simpson, Sam Leaso, Stephanie Dyer and Chelsea Jones on reaching the Mount Fanklin Challenge Grand Final in their WDNA representative teams.  It was great to see our girls performing at such a high level!

WDNA Open Team with our Stephanie Dyer started strongly in what turned out to be a nail biting game.  Reminiscent of the Aus v NZ games the Wests girls went down by one goal to Downey Park.

Our girls Sam Leaso, Jess Simpson and Chelsea Jones in the WDNA 19 years team were behind at half time and despite a late surge were unable to claw back the deficit.

Look forward to seeing you there!


Saturday had so many great moments – the weather was perfect for netball; the non-competitive teams enjoyed their mini carnival; our spectators were too many to count and best of all our four grand final teams gave it everything.

“It is your response to winning and losing that makes you a winner or a loser”  and all of our girls were winners on Saturday!  They did our club proud by showing great sportsmanship on and off the court in both victory and defeat.

Rangers 8 – 12 Years Div 1 – There was standing room only to watch Danelle Spasojevic’s team take on St Josephs.  Their girl’s wore our uniform with pride, including a matching hairstyle and face paint.  Rebecca Biffin’s maths teacher came to cheer on the girls and give some moral support – apparently she knows a bit about netball – it was Lauren Nourse, Qld Firebird player.  In an intense game of extremely good netball our girls went down in the end 29-18.

Rangers 7 – 13 Yrs div 4 – The cheering was just as strong for Tammy Goynich’s girls when they played the next round.  Our girls got off to a slow start, but came out in the second quarter and showed why they had made it to the grand final.   Jindalee surged back and were too strong on the day winning by 28-19.

Rangers 5 – Intermediate 4 – Anne Head’s team were treated to the same support from spectators.  The first half was a fairly even game which had the sideline holding their breath.  In the end our girls were too strong for Stuartholme and came away with a win 27-21.

Rangers 4 – Intermediate 2 – John Fearon’s team turned up ready for business after a surprise loss in the semi finals.  They had lots of help from supporters with cheering, some dancing and a great ‘run through’ banner.  At first quarter we were up by 4, to which John told them it was not enough, at half time they were up by 11.  John kept the score to himself and told them to keep up the intensity.  Our girls out classed Centenary finally winning 47-27.

Well done to everyone, players and spectators!   GO RANGERS!
