Paraparaumu College are looking strong heading into the premier netball season after two solid wins during grading games at the week- end. Coach Leanne Brinck praised her team's maturity after mastering blustery con- ditions at Te Atiawa Park, making shooting difficult. They are a really out- standing, talented young team and it has been fantas- tic working with them,'' said the coach, in her first year with the college team. The mix of girls from year 13 down to three year 11 students defeated Bluebirds in their first match on Saturday 15-12, following that up with a 15-10 victory against Business House 1. Captain Jade Candy had an outstanding day'' playing at wing attack, marshalling her team and putting in a captain's knock, Brinck said. She said integrating the year 11 players Jacinta Beck- ley, Georgia Patu and Brooke Mason into the team has been a breeze because of the influence of Candy, and other senior players. Paraparaumu College has set their sights on defending their premier grade title, but Brinck is wary of the other teams. Anyone is capable because they are all really strong teamsthisyear. . .sowe aren't taking anything for granted.'' Netball Kapiti administra- tor Sandra Bednarek said the premier grade competition will start this weekend with six teams playing a five-week round robin. The teams will then play another five matches against Kapi-Mana teams, before returning to the Kapiti com- petition for playoffs. She said the start of the season has been a bit of a shambles'' this year as work on upgrading the courts at Te Atiawa Park was delayed with poor weather. They were supposed to be finished two weeks ago before the season started, but that is something that the contrac- tors have to work though.'' It is hoped the courts will be finished for Saturday's matches, but Bednarek was pessimistic on Tuesday. It all comes down to the weather really so I don't know if we will be playing on all the courts or not, at this stage.'' Brinck said it had inter- rupted her team's buildup for the season, but every team was in the same boat. I think we are all just looking forward to when they are finished because, from what I have seen, they will be fantastic.'' Narrow miss for golfers By BEN STRANG One of the best team performances from Para- paraumu Beach's interclub golf team in about five years was not enough to beat Miramar at Waikanae on Saturday. Paraparaumu went down 8-7 in the Duncan Cup semifinal, but had Miramar sweating until the final put. Not one person in Wellington would have thought that we had a chance of beating Mira- mar,'' team spokesman Kevin Speight said. It would have been one of the biggest upsets in memory.'' Paraparaumu had some bad news before the match, with captain Frank Borren admitted to hospital with a severe kidney stone, ruling him out. Eighteen-year-old Cameron Whyte was thrown into the mix, in the No 3 spot, and did a superb job considering the circumstances, Speight said. Paraparaumu was pleased to finish the morning foursomes with the score locked at 2.5 games each. In the afternoon, No 1 James Betts, won his singles match, as did Jimmy Moore, Brendon Cat- termole and Stu Webster, ranked 6, 7 and 8 respectively, giving the team a chance of an upset win. Those hopes ended up falling on Whyte's shoulders when he played Jeff Tuaro on the final hole. Tuaro led by one heading down the 18th, and when Whyte birdied, it looked as if the match may be tied, which would send top seed Betts into a playoff with Miramar's Richard Squire. However, Tuaro sent a delightful chip to within a metre of the hole, and rolled in a pressure putt with both teams and about 20 supporters watching from behind the green, said Speight. Miramar's victory books the team a place against Shandon in the final at Paraparaumu Beach this Saturday. It is a little bit frustrating to have got so close to making the final, but on the other hand it is probably one of the best games we have played since making the final in 2003,'' Speight said.
