The Sabres Under 14.1 Girls won the silver medal at the Under 14 National Championships going down in the final 53-38 to the Gold Coast on Saturday Night in Shepparton.
The girls defeated Sturt Sabres in the Quarter Final and the previously undefeated Melbourne Tigers in the Semi Final. The win against the Tigers was particularly special – the girls had been getting close all season and Melbourne had not dropped a game throughout the VJBL season, the National Junior Classic and the Eltham/Dandenong and Adelaide Tournaments.
Congratulations to Head Coach Erik Wickstrom, Assistant Coaches Jacqui O’Neill and Deanna Joliffe, Team Manager Anne-Maree Nunan and players Natalia Hordejuk, Giselle Buckley, Hannah Wickstrom, Kate Godden, Madison Simmons, Christina Roberts, Remi Harris, Zoe Pulling, Ella Razga and Tegan Mouncer on their fantastic achievement!
