“Emerald Panthers, coached by Viv Webley, and Emerald Lightning, coached by Anne Self, were pushed up a couple of divisions, but still came home with wins to their credit,” Hall said.

“They played hard all weekend, improved with every game and never gave up.

“Thanks to our coaches and umpires who gave up their weekend to make ENA’s participation in the event possible.

“Our thanks also goes to our parents and spectators for their support.”

Four Emerald Netball Association (ENA) junior teams travelled to Rockhampton for the carnival, which attracted a record 132 teams.
