The Div.1 NCAA Huskies proved too strong last night for the combined U16, U18 and YLW Panther girls running out victors 61-35 in front a great Penrith crowd.
It was a fantastic opportunity for our young local girls to play a high ranked NCAA team who in their upcoming season will take on powerhouse colleges such as Baylor.
The Panther girls should be very proud of their performance considering the difference in ages and experience with our girls ranging from 15 to 20 and the Huskies 18 to 23. Ella Tofaeono impressed the Huskies coaching staff with a solid game and 12pts and was best supported by Chloe Bloom with 10pts.
Congratulations to the Penrith Youth Women on their Championship victory yesterday over the Manly Sea Eagles 66-61.
The girls certainly earned their victory the hard way after an inconsistent second round of the regular season saw them lose to all three teams they faced in the playoffs, 29pts to Norths, 18pts to Manly and 7 pts to Hornsby.
Congratulations to Adam McIntyre, Ben Lomnicki and Anthea Jarrett who have all been selected to referee at the Waratah League Finals weekend after a long season involving lots of travel and commitment. Great job and congratulations.
