The Otago Boys’ and Girls’ U15 teams finished up their seasons during the second week of the school holidays with the National tournament at Trustpower Arena in Tauranga.
Thanks to all the players, coaches, and support staff for their help with the teams over the duration of the season (Jan. to July). Both squads were challenged, battles were won and lost and experiences were made.
The girls ended up 5th out of 20 teams, whilst the boys finished 6th of out 20 teams. Both Laura Ring and Noah McDowall earned a spot each on the All-Tournament teams.
Congratulations to Angus Henderson and Brittney Young on their selection as officials at the tournament. Britt officiated the girls’ bronze medal game and Angus officiated the girls’ gold medal game.
Final team placings for all teams can be found as a resource.
