PARKVIEW Public School recently claimed the LNPSSA netball championships for the second time in three years following an entertaining day of competition at the Leeton Indoor Stadium.
Drawn to play Small Schools in the opening round of the day, the team played some good netball to overcome a determined opponent and qualify for the final of the competition.
For Parkview, Chelsea Blacker was prominent in attack while Lana Simcoe and Sharna Morriss produced some effective netball in the mid-court and Ruby Miller was strong in defence.

The final of the completion had Parkview matched up with Leeton Public School, who had defeated Narrandera Public School to make the final.
The game was a pulsating match up, played in front of a raucous crowd of more than 500 spectators in the stadium.
Parkview sprang out of the blocks early to establish a 4-0 lead thanks to some excellent combinations through the mid-court led by Taylah Axtill.
However, Leeton PS fought back, placing Parkview under pressure to narrow the deficit to just one at half time.
The second half had more of the same, with Leeton PS taking a one goal lead with just seven minutes remaining before Parkview assumed control.
Amelia Irvin produced some excellent shooting and Holley Krause really stepped up in the defensive circle to help Parkview to a nine goal victory and the LNPSSA title.
Parkview now progresses to the fourth round of the NSWPSSA knockout.
