It gives me great pleasure to see a group of individuals gain the reward they deserve for what has been an incredible season. The U14 basketball team are UNBEATEN and this season have showed composure, talent, resilience and most importantly GRIT!
I could not be prouder of these girls for not giving up, showing positivity and optimism every step and always supporting each other - What a squad!
