DENMAN Public School (DPS) celebrated a clean sweep at the Singleton Netball Gala Day after the school's open mixed team conquered Friday afternoon's competition.

DPS Red finished on top of Pool A thanks to wins over Singleton Public (20-0), Kirkton Public (17-0), Singleton Heights Black (16-2) and St James' Muswellbrook (16-2).

But, what was the school's secret formula to success?

"Hard work and determination," replied teacher and coach Amanda Ballard.

"The girl that stood out was Remi Brown."

"She's often a defender but she had a great day in attack today."

"Blake Scott also had great persistence and determination in trying to get the ball."

DPS Black also finished equal first in open mixed - Pool B with a 3-1 winning record.

However, the crown would go to King Street Primary School on a countback.

Meanwhile, Singleton's St Catherine's Catholic College took out three major titles only to be matched on the final tally by the tournament's dark-horse St Brigid's, Raymond Terrace.
