Netball game

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Lauren was selected for the ANZ Future Ferns competition to lead the netball team out onto the court! It was at the Mystics/Vixens game on the 25th of March.

We turned up at Trusts Stadium in Henderson and met up with the co-ordinator there. We decided to make a family event of it so we all went.

Lauren met up with the co-ordinator there and the other girl who won the competition. They were guided by the co-ordinator as to what was going to happen.

Lauren then met the netball captains and held the flags out while the teams were introduced. Lauren got an introduction from the announcer, saying she was 8 years old and wanted to be a fashion designer for Netball players!

Out on the court, the Mystics goalshoot chatted with Lauren and put her arm around her. Very sweet!

We got it all on video and some photos. They took an “official” shot of Lauren with the captains and we also got a certificate! So very cool!

We all had a great time at the game – even Evan. The Mystics lost unfortunately, but it was a great game! Thanks to ANZ for doing the competition and supporting the NZ netball!
