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

‘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.’

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