Our ladies started their rep season in December training right through the Christmas/New Year period. They were lucky enough to have access to excellent training facilities not only at our park, but also at Southwell School. A huge thanks to coach, Cowley Harris for making this possible.
The teams overall placing at the tournament was 4th which was an excellent effort.
WKSA are proud to announce that three of our ladies were named in the SNZ Tournament Team for 2015:
Aaria Tawha - CatcherJhanaya Nathan - OutfielderPania Monk - DP and Tournament MVP
Congratulations to all.
