Netball MBAS Senior A Preparing for UNISS - The upper North Island Secondary Schools tournament
Senior A played at the WBoP secondary school netball tournie in Rororua August 6. A VERY cold tournie in Rotorua for WBoP UNISS teams. MBAS won 1 of 6 games. The team we won against is in the same grade as us at UNISS. A very positive tournie for us, as we could see where we stand against teams in higher grades. Bring on UNISS!!!
