Hibiscus Coast claims Old Field Shield

Hibiscus Coast netball junior captains, and some extras, girls in uniform, receive the Oldfield Shield from Samantha Oldfield and Leah Mainland, back right.

Hibiscus Coast won the Oldfield Shield at the Rodney Netball Centre on Sunday, August 18. Hibiscus Coast, Kaipara (Helensville) and Rodney sent Year 7, Year 8, U15 and senior teams to compete at the Rodney Netball Centre.

At the end of the day, wins are tallied up and the club with the most points takes the shield.

Each win is worth three points. Hibiscus led with 21 points, Kaipara scored 13 and Rodney scored 4.

The Senior Challenge trophy, which factors in only the senior games, was won by Kaipara for the first time since 2004.

Elsie Oldfield donated the shield for the competition to Rodney Netball Centre in 1965.

Her granddaughters, Samantha Oldfield and Leah Mainland, both played on the day for Rodney and presented the trophies to the winning teams.
