Last week we looked at some of the success stories from Riddell District Football Netball League’s junior football competitions. This week we turn our attention to the girls on the netball court.


Rupertswood’s junior netballers had a season they won’t forget with the club winning four of the six Riddell District Netball League premierships on offer.

The Sharks won the under-11, under-15 Beatson and Turner, and under-17 premierships, while their under-13 Turner side finished runners up.

The under-11 team were the biggest winners on grand final day with the side beating Woodend 24-18.
