The U/17 Brunswick Byron Netball team finished in 3rd place in division three at the 2017 Netball NSW State Championships, which was hosted by Baulkham Hills Shire Netball Association over the June long weekend.
Their side finished with 15 wins, just falling short of the top two, from their round-robin-style competition, against some of the best netball talent from around NSW.
‘These amazing young ladies came third in the state. They did extremely well,’ Janine Burger, Brunswick Byron Netball Association secretary said.
‘Not only did they come third, they were the team with the fewest goals scored against them and the only team to beat the winning team Glen Innes.
‘They played 19 games of netball across three days and some of the players played every game.
‘Well done to the girls and their coach Narelle Anderton,’ she said.
Over the three days more than 1,000 athletes took to the courts rain, hail or shine to contest the 969 matches with more than 32,884 goals scored, averaging to a total of 33 goals per game.
