The Beez U/16 Division 1 girls team travelled to Coffs Harbour for the final round of the Northern Junior League and came away with four wins from four games.

The small team, depleted by sickness and injury, pulled out all the stops, showing great skills, determination and heart to remain undefeated after playing against Quirindi, Coffs Harbour, Tamworth and Taree.

The team finished as minor premiers for U16G Division 1 NJL, winning 13 out of 14 games for the competition.  

This is another first for the Beez.

The Beez are showing the rest of the competition they are the team to beat. 

On July 7 and 8 they head off to Tamworth for the finals and have a top chance to take out the championship.

Team members missing from the photo are Isy Crawford (currently the Northern Junior League’s top scorer) and Brianna Hart.
