Flying Netballer ...

Claire's school, Rosepark Primary played Netball today. They have been doing really well and are currently running third on the ladder. Today however, they came up against the top side. Although Rosepark was beaten, it was a good match to watch as both sides were tested.
The girl (left) in the picture was particularly damaging. When she wasn't totally dominating playing Center, she was playing Wing Defence, as in this shot. Her ability to intercept, as shown here, as well as her incredible speed in disposal, was of a standard I have not seen in this age group. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of her in senior netball ranks, perhaps even at the highest levels.
As seems usual taking photos at sport, if only I had been on the other side of the court at the time :)

Adelaide Pedal Prix

A friend's son was riding/ driving a Pedal Prix car today in Adelaide. Now some of these teams are REALLY kamikaze types.
