Coach: Miss Seeney
On Thursday 15 September our Year 10-12 girls AFL team competed at the State Finals, facing the best teams of each region throughout the ACT/NSW. The girls went undefeated in their pool matches, however, faced a very competitive St Catherine’s, Waverley in the final. The girls narrowly missed out on the title, going down 14-11. Playing short of numbers, they demonstrated great skill and determination and should be very proud of their efforts.
Congratulations to all involved on a fantastic achievement and to Kaylee for taking out the award for ‘best on ground’. Well done!
