WAGGA'S 14-and-under side led the charge in an impressive showing for the region at the Netball NSW Junior State Titles in Sydney.
The 14-and-under squad won 12 and drew two of their 17 division two matches over the three day competition to finish sixth overall.
The 12-and-under side also finished sixth in division two with an 11-7 record, while the 13-and-under squad managed a win and a draw after being elevated to the championship division this year.
"A lot of them stepped up, they're not used to three days of constant netball so they did well to battle it out," 12-and-under assistant coach Mikaela Cole said.
"We were hoping to finish a bit higher, but we had a lot of injuries some of the girls had to play through."
Wagga 13-and-under coach Jemima Norbury said her side acquitted itself well as the only regional team in the top division.
They really pushed some of the top teams,which was very surprising. We only lost by three to Manly who finished second," Norbury said.
"They proved they have the skill, but their mentality and maturity let them down being their first year in division one.
"We said to the girls they're still in the top 20 in the state, they kept fighting every game and hopefully it will be enough to keep us in division one next year."
