U17 Victorian Girls - National Champions!

The U17 Girls Championships were held over the week of 17th. to 23rd. April at the Eltham Lacrosse Club.  The Eltham Lacrosse Club should be congratulated for hosting a fabulous week of lacrosse.

On arrival the fog sat over the ground on a crisp and cold morning with tall white pointed tents that look like a game of Quidditch (Harry Potter style).  The Eltham volunteers were amazing, nothing was too much trouble and the grounds and change facilities were immaculate (even down to "pink carnations" in the urinal) of the "girls changing room"!  The best potatoes and burgers in town were part of the extensive menu available at the ground each day.U17 Victorian girls action shot

The U17 girls were undefeated and played a hard fought game based on full field pressure.  These tactics saw the girl's first game against South Australia score, Victoria 19, South Australia 6.  Next the Vic's played WA scoring 16 Vic, WA - 8.  Second game against SA Vic's 13 defeating SA - 4.  Our second game against WA saw Vic's win 16, WA - 5.  The final found us playing SA on the 23rd. April, the final result - Victoria, was victorious! -  Vic's - 14,
SA - 5.

The final results did not reflect the quality of lacrosse played throughout the week; all girls from all States played hard and fast Lacrosse and should be congratulated.
It was a fantastic week for Victorian lacrosse taking out all four finals; both boys and girls were VICTORIOUS!!!
