The Dunghutti Diamonds netball team thoroughly enjoyed themselves while representing Kempsey in the 18th Koori Netball tournament held in Charlestown on October 27 and 28.

The girls, who are mostly under-10s, played in the under-12s competition and performed admirably against the more experienced opposition, winning two of their eight games.

Diamonds’ coach Jessica King said the girls played well in what was a tough competition.

“Some of the girls in the team had never played before,” she told the Argus.

“It was really exciting to see the girls improve each game.”

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER: The Dunghutti Diamonds under 12s comprised mostly of girls aged under 10 years.
