Murrabit aims to keep getting better

AS REIGNING premier in A-grade netball, Murrabit will be aiming to keep getting better across the Golden Rivers FNL season.

A superb run by the Blues ended with a 47-36 grand final victory against Macorna.

Murrabit achieved a win-loss tally of 13-3 in the home-and-away series and then beat the Tigers in the second semi, 56-45, and then the match which matters most.

The Kalinda Stanton-coached Murrabit starts the ’24 campaign by playing on Hay’s court on April 20.

Last season’s runner-up, Macorna will be coached by Tiff Bartram.

The Tigers win-loss tally of 12-4 in ’23 included a 42-41 at home against Murrabit in the 14th round.

Macorna is at home to play Wandella on April 20.

It will be joint coaches at Moulamein as Kathy Munro and Sarah Carmichael team up to lead the Swans.

Moulamein’s run last season was eight wins, two draws, six defeats.

After an 11-goal win against Ultima in the first semi, Moulamein went down to Macorna in the preliminary final by 11 goals.

The Swans host Ultima in a rematch of the ’23 first semi-finalists at Moulamein on April 20.

An Ultima team coached by Tayla Foster will be fired up for the round one match on the Swans court.

The Kangaroos also had an 8-6-2 record last season.

Wandella and Hay will be determined to improve their win-loss ratio.

The Bombers from Wandella will be coached by Brooke Williams.

A high of Wandella’s run in ’23 included a 29-26 win on Macorna’s court in the 11th round, a 37-all draw with Ultima, and 40-all result at Moulamein in the 15th round.

Hay’s sole victory last season was the 35-31 victory against Wandella in the ninth round at the Lions den.

A Lani Houston-coached team from Hay will be desperate to bring stronger defensive intent to the court.
