Also, thank you to all the parents who helped each team with scoring and timekeeping on Saturday’s 

Good luck to Yui Nakajima and Amelia Morrison who are attending their first South Otago age group Netball tournament this Sunday in Dunedin.  Jade Gutsell has been invited to attend this tournament as an umpire, this is fantastic as Jade only started volunteering on Saturdays umpiring along with four other TCAS students at the beginning of the 2019 season.
