Rugby League Girls Rewarded for their Efforts

Over the past few months, girls from Years 9 to 12 have been competing in both school and club rugby league competitions. While the club games have been under the Caboolture Snakes banner, the entire team have been students from Caboolture State High School. During the 2013, 9-a-side season, both the Under 15s and Under 18s girls have put in many hours in after school training sessions here at school, lunch time training sessions and their Friday nights for a 10 week season. Both teams had huge successes in making the Grand Final played at the Sunshine Coast and their efforts didn’t go unrewarded, with 7 girls from the U18s team, and 6 girls from the U15s team being selected for the Sunshine Coast Falcon’s representative team. On top of the club competition, the U15s recently played at Kingaroy in the inaugural U15s 9-a-side day, and had a huge success finishing third overall and only four points behind the leader.
During August, the girls were rewarded for their efforts in Rugby League with a school trip to the Broncos vs St George game at Suncorp Stadium. A huge thank-you must go out to Chris Little for organising this event for the girls, they all had a blast! Finally, thanks goes to the captains of both the Under 15s and Under 18s teams, Emma Law, Jenna Rose- Werahiko, Skylah Hill and Michaela Grant for all their extra efforts in rounding up the girls for training, and the constant encouragement. Well done to all the girls, looking forward to the continued success for the rest of the 9-a-side competitions in 2013 and into 2014!
