Wide Bay earns draw at state netball titles

NETBALL: Wide Bay Thundercats finished the first Nissan 16-and-under state titles at Toowoomba with just one competition point to its name.

The Thundercats, comprised of players from Hervey Bay, Bundaberg and the Burnett, struggled to match its opposition at the three-day event.

Five Hervey Bay Netball players - Tamara-Jane Anderson, Grace Farrelly, Keira Stephens, Brooke Harvey and Sophie Harvey - played for Wide Bay, who earned a 24-all draw with Whitsunday Sharks on Friday.

Wide Bay simply couldn't force a win, however, and fell 35-30 to the similarly win-less Marlin Coast Marlins in their last game at the event.
