Bar v UQ Students Netball Match – 5 March 2023
The inaugural netball match against the UQ students was held on Sunday 5 March. The Bar started with an advantage because, well, we were playing against students and it was a 10am start on a Sunday. That advantage proved to be fatal for the students, with the Bar taking honours 26-12.
At quarter time the Bar led 7-2 and the students never really looked like getting back, even though in the last quarter the scores were even.
Hard to pick player of the match between outstanding performances by Jane Menzies (as always in GK), Bellah Brewer (ring-in, shhh!) in GS and Carolyn McKeon who is a lightning pocket rocket in Centre. Special mention to “that really funny guy” aka Skoieney and Douggie Freeburn, both of whom excelled in only their second ever game of netty.
Traves KC’s daughter Lottie excelled for the students, and we have our eye on her for a future member of our team.
All in all a great morning, we welcomed some new players since the solicitors match last year and the Bar team is shaping up to be world dominators!
Another tournament v students and solicitors is being organised for the second half of this year.
