As we welcomed in 2017 a number of our players started the year by representing QLD at their respected nationals. Bec C, Jess, Bec M, Chelsea, Carmie and Janice were our A1 representative in the QLD Heat Team as they attempted to defend their Gilley's Shield title in Sydney. Unfortunately it wasn't to be for the team going down in the final against NSW. Our A1 players shined through the whole tournament with a number of the girls earning selection in the Australian teams. Also in Sydney was our A1 Coach Matt Torpey, he was assisting the U17 girls in their nationals campaign. Erin Blackmore just finished playing U19 Nationals in Perth where she came home with 3rd place. What a talented bunch of players and officials we have here at Bears. Another example of just how good we are! Well done to all involved, we're all so proud!
