REHOBOTH, 15 APR (NAMPA) – The Khomas Under-19 regional netball team feel they have a very good chance to go all the way and win The Namibian Newspaper Cup netball category in Mariental this weekend.
The competition starts on 19 April and ends 22 April and will see all 14 regions represented in what is Namibia’s biggest youth football and netball competition.
Speaking to Nampa on Monday, vice-captain Amaryllis Lehanie said looking at their preparations and team composition they feel they can win the cup.
“We really have been working very hard the past month and we are improving every day. The team spirit, communication and telepathy on and off the field are great and we think we might win it,” a confident Lehanie said.
Her teammate Charlane Shaanika concurred and said they are ready for any team.
“We had a few friendly matches against league teams and we fared well; we are ready to fly the flag of the region high,” she added.
Khomas are drawn in Group B with Otjozondjupa, Ohangwena, Erongo, host Hardap, Oshana and Omusati.
Kavango East were crowned the inaugural The Namibian Newspaper Cup 2018 netball champions after beating Erongo 39-33 in Katima Mulilo last year.
