But just getting a team together for the South Island Secondary Schools Netball tournament was a mighty achievement.
The tiny school has just 11 senior netballers and only nine of them were available for the tournament being staged in Dunedin this week.
Nine would have been enough to get through. But the team arrived with just seven players and they are, well, a mixed bag.
Some of them did not actually play netball but wanted to support the girls who did, coach Kelly Anderson said.
''On Wednesday last week we had nine players, but one was diagnosed with rheumatic fever and we dropped down to eight,'' she said.
''At our last practice on Thursday we lost [one more] and arrived with seven players and no-one to call on from our school.''
Anderson was able to rustle up a reserve from Twizel Area School and she arrived on Monday.
''We've got eight here, but within that eight we have four that don't even play netball. They are here to make up the numbers.''
Three of the squad are year 9 pupils and it has been ''a shock to the system for those year 9s to play this sort of level''.
''My job this week is more about encouragement and player welfare.
''When you have players who don't play netball, and you are trying to get them through a week-long tournament, it is actually about keeping their confidence up and keeping them happy ... keep the lollies and the fluffies coming.
''But I can't ask any more of these girls.
''They are picking up the slack to support the girls who do play netball.''
Seven teams from Otago and Southland have made it through to the top 16: Blue Mountain College, Columba College, Dunstan HS, Waitaki Girls' HS, Southland Girls' HS, South Otago HS and defending champion St Hilda's Collegiate.
