I can’t remember the last time we won but it’s not in the past 10 years. We’ve got a very good group.

COROWA High School’s netball team is off to the NSW championships next month after taking out the Riverina title recently.

Corowa proved too strong for Murray and Albury high schools, scoring convincing wins against both schools.

The team will travel to Wollongong next month to compete in the two-day carnival.

Claire Wilson, Nicole Beale, Tess Wilson, Brooke Wilson, Breanna Clark, Lexi Horwood, Sophie Hanrahan, Megan Smith, Erica Hanrahan, Tiarnie Brockley and Emily Boyle make up the squad.

Corowa High also took out the Xavier Tanner Shield recently for the first time in more than a decade.

The school won the region’s premier football trophy for years 9 and 10 with a 28-point victory against Xavier High at John Foord Oval last week.

Jack Schilg was dominant for the home team, along with Ryan Bruce.

“I can’t remember the last time we won but it’s not in the past 10 years,” coach Craig Fisher said.

“We’ve got a very good group with three state players and seven regional players.

“We dominated possession but didn’t convert early, which made things interesting.”

The team also qualified for the next round of the Swan Shield, but is likely to forfeit after being scheduled to play in Byron Bay.

“It would have been nice, because we’ve never won both in the same year, but it’s looking a bit too difficult,” Fisher said.
