Netball side back in top flight

04 September 2006

Top spot: Thanks to players like Keeyan Dick - voted as the netball club's Player of the Year - the UCT first side has won promotion to the WP Super League.

Despite a season shortened by the long mid-year break, the netball first side has managed to win top spot on the Western Province A-league. That means that come 2007, the side will be back in the Super League, the top local competition. Not surprisingly, a number of players were singled out for honours at the club's recent AGM. Stalwart Keeyan Dick was named Player of the Year, Melanie de Beer was voted Most Accurate Shooter, and the side won the Team of the Year prize. They may have breezed through the A-league, but the side will know that the Super League is going to be no bed of roses. They lost all but one of their games in their 2004 campaign in the top flight. And the 2007 squad may look vastly different to the current one once the December graduations have come and gone. Dick, for example, finishes her studies this year. The younger players, like De Beer, will have to step up their game.
