The Brunswick Byron Netball Association U/17 side has once again won Netball NSW’s third division state tournament going through the three-day, 18-game competition undefeated.

Six of the nine players came through from the BBNA side that also won the same competition undefeated in 2018.

‘Teamwork and determination’ were the winning hallmarks of the side, coach Narelle Anderton said. ‘Everyone in the team has to be focused and has to perform all the time’.

‘Great netball was played, the girls thoroughly deserved their win’.

After last year’s undefeated run through the competition the club applied to move up a division, but this was rejected by Netball NSW, as was the appeal to reconsider their decision.

‘We couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t let us go up a grade,’ Narelle said.

Support staff including manager Julieanne Ross, primary carer Sarah Dixon, caterer Alison Cromwell, and umpires Sue Keough and Jeanie Kuwert were also crucial to the team effort.

‘All the parents were very supportive as well,’ Narelle said.
