The team won three games, had one draw and played 19 over three days to end 17th overall in one of the hallmark events of the NNSW calendar.
“The girls played great and really came together when it counted,” said coach Kristin Read. She said the team had been training hard starting at the end of last year. They played at four regional training carnivals in Orange, Dubbo, Cowra and in Forbes winning their division.
