The competition involved an initial 1000 schools and the Inverloch team won its way through to a grand final played at Waverley Park against St Thomas the Apostle.
Inverloch Primary fielded a team of ten, including two students from its Kongwak annexe.
Coach Clare Peterson said the team worked really hard for their coveted result.
“It’s amazing and something to be really proud of,” she said.
School PE teacher Jesse Boyd said the team trained two or three times a week for several months and he believes the state win is the culmination of training and the school’s culture of participation, commitment and philosophy of being positive.
The players are in Grade Five or Six.
In a different netball state championship, Inverloch Primary’s all boys’ team came second and the all girls’ side placed third.
