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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
