The Brunswick Byron Netball Association has scored two excellent results at the state age championships held in Sydney over the weekend of July 6–8.

During the championships the BBNA U/13s were undefeated and crowned division 4 winners.

The team was: Eva Brooke, Lucy Colli, Smara Grainey, Bella Griffiths, Olivia Langtry, Evie Porter, Velia Russo, Abigail Spice and Noni Wright

The U/14s also had a great tournament achieving second place in division 4.  

‘Joanne Wallwork and Jordan Evans have been fantastic coaching these girls over the last two years. They will now move up to division three for the U/15s next year,’ Janine said.

The team was: Aniela Carpenter, Layla Goundrie, Maggie Hall, Lola Hutchinson, Olivia Page, Grace Pateman, Matilda Peacock, Paige Wilkie and Bethany Woods.

The U/15s were the third BBNA team sent to Sydney for the carnival and achieved fifth place in their championship run.

‘It has been a very successful year for the Brunswick Byron Association. We are also very proud of these girls,’ she said.
