The Northern junior netball grand finals were a cause for great celebration in the Wilson household.
Sisters Ally and Erin both played in victorious teams with Erin even taking home a teddy bear for a best-on-ground performance.
The Newstead siblings, who play for Gee Tees and attend Punchbowl Primary School, epitomised the celebratory air as Hoblers Bridge played host to plenty of cheers and a few tears.
Twelve-year-old Ally's Phoenix side defeated a team they had lost to throughout the 20-week season and Erin, 10, produced standout performances at wing attack, centre and especially in post-game interviews.
"I like that you get to play with awesome netballers," she said. "Everyone is really encouraging when you play and it's a really athletic sport."
The Northern Tasmanian Netball Association's junior winter rosters wrapped up with 13 grand finals from 11s to 17s, watched by a legion of parents enjoying the action and sunshine.
NTNA operations manager Michelle Woodiwiss said about 700 netballers had featured across the campaign.
"Numbers are up from last year and the season has gone really well," she said.
"They are all really excited to be playing in grand finals and the good weather helps after last year when it was pouring with rain and we had to cancel until the Monday and Tuesday nights and play at the Silverdome."
After regional junior tournaments were staged at Hoblers Bridge on June 23 and by the Southern Tasmanian Netball Association on July 28, next weekend will see Devonport complete the picture with 12 Northern representative teams heading to the Coast after which state under-15 and under-17 sides will be selected.
Woodiwiss said netball remains Tasmania's most popular female sport with a regular stream of players graduating to State League competition.
In addition to junior and senior rosters, a six-week social spring roster will begin in October open to all ages and abilities.
