Netballers shine

Brunswick Byron Netball Association recently sent three teams to the NSW State Age Championships in Newcastle, with the 14-years team taking the winner's trophy in its division.

The 13-years team came sixth and the 15-years team came third.

Nearly 300 teams from 80 associations contested the championships during three days.

The 13-years team was the only team to beat the champions, Nelson Bay, which it did by nine goals.

Team members are Shelley Clark, Sienna Stewart, Lauren Aroyan, Alex Barnes, Dominique Callan, Jordan Evans, Jemma Oxley, Brittany McDonald, Cecilia Brandolini and coach Michelle Stewart.

The 14-years team had an exceptional year at the championships, going undefeated in 17 games.

The team of nine girls is Shandel Dennis, Maddy Docking, Taylor Kempnich, Tory Leary, Grace Lockrey, Amelia Meikle, Eliza Salvatori, Chelsea Mathews and Charlotte Whan.

Brunswick Byron 15s were in second position for the final round but were pipped at the post by one point, with Scone coming second.

The squad includes Meg O'Brien, Rosie O'Connor, Bridget Bain Jones, Elli Bain Jones, Lauren Peitens, Lucy Milne, Tayla Browning, Abby Buckley and Renee Millard.
