Netball team plagued by injuries at Winter Games

Barriere netball team coach Kim Fennell says injuries were a big problem

Barriere netball team coach Kim Fennell says injuries were a big problem for the team at last months B.C. Winter Games competition in Vernon.  They also added a few players to the team at the last minute due to the fact some were not able to make the trip to the Games.

“Unfortunately Talyse Lyons got a concussion in the first game and was out for the balance,” said the coach, “We won one game, and then had a ‘do or die’ game to get into the medal round, during which we lost Alex Harpauer with a sprained ankle.  The following game another girl on the team had to play with a migraine, and everybody else was out of position.  The remaining girls played really hard, but it was not to be.  However, everyone learned lots, and had a really good time.”

Regular netball season will be starting up in Barriere at the high school after spring break.
