Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
The Southland Netball team in 1983 was a mixture of experience and youth, with this combination they were looking to do well in Gisborne at the New Zealand championships.
This was only their second year back in first grade after spending ten years in second grade.
Being at the bottom of the grade means that they will face the tougher teams first, which could have been good for them as it would give them time to get a combination sorted.
Teresa Panagiotidis was one of the younger members of the Southland Netball team in 1983.
Teresa played for the Brigadiers club and had shown good form there as well as last year's national tournament..
Coming from Indoor Basketball, Teresa had adapted her game well and was not overwhelmed with the responsibility of being the main shoot. With a good shooting stat she would be invaluable for Southland netball's future.
Even though it was the first netball tournament for Debbie Angus she had constantly been in age group squads and also the Southland B team in 1982. Debbie was very athletic and her resolve in the court made her hard to defend.
Mrs Doreen Lange said she was confident that the team would perform at tournament, but was not unwise to think that it would beat the top contenders.
