SINGLETON High School will compete for the chance to represent Hunter at state level after winning a round robin competition in Scone.
The Combined High School (CHS) 15 years netball knockout tournament saw Singleton take on Muswellbrook and Scone at Bill Rose Sports Complex this week.
It was organised to determine which Upper Hunter school would progress to the next stage in Newcastle.
Playing in hot conditions, Scone High School scrapped through a tightly-contested opening game to win 31-23.
Muswellbrook then played Singleton, with the latter proving far too strong in a 51-32 victory.
The final game between Scone and Singleton was for a qualifying spot.
The hosts were unable to recover from a slow start as Singleton took advantage of constant turnovers, storming to a 45-17 triumph.
Despite the defeat, Scone High School coach Natalie Smith said she was very proud of her young team.
“The majority of our team were Year 7 players and they will be able to contest this age division for the next two years,” she said.
“I look forward to seeing the girls continue to develop their skills and court play.
“Scone High School wishes Singleton High all the best in the next round at Newcastle later in the month.”
